National Museum of Australia
The Pod recently completed the ‘Coachbuilder Book of Designs’ interactive for a new exhibition at the National Museum of Australia entitled Spirited: Australia’s Horse Story. The display is a catalogue of artifacts from throughout Australian Equine history, showcasing icons of Australia’s racing industry, antique horse-drawn carts and riding equipment.
The ‘Coachbuilder Book of Designs’ interactive is a digital representation of the actual book featuring engravings and photographs that originally appeared in the trade newspaper ‘The Australasian Coach builder and Wheelwright’ from 1901-1917. The interactive features gesture-based, pinch and zoom technology that allows users to view in greater detail the original 258 pages of the book.
