Scrollino : The new book concept to scroll

Scrollino is the new original book form and editorial concept offering a playful experience to all book lovers. You just need your regular pencil, to scroll down the Scrollino, to read, to draw or write and to scroll it up again. Scrollino was created in 2016 by artists and edition lidu´s founders Ludmila & Sylvain Favardin.

Scrollino was sucessfully pre-launched in June 2016 during the 1 months exhibition Scrollino by edition lidu at le lieu unique in Nantes (France). We are very proud to present the Scrollino First edition that shows the Scrollino in all its beauty, made in France with 100 % biosourced, recyclable, biodegradable and renewable materials.

Created by artists and edition lidu‘s founders Ludmila & Sylvain Favardin in 2016, Scrollino follows edition lidu´s previous experimental project Pocket Comic Books (concept also created by Favardin in 2013 and published in 2014), using thermal printing of POS printers, originally used in cash registers, to publish beautiful black and white illustrated books and comics on few meters long continuous paper strip.

Scrollino takes this concept step further and gives even more playful experience to readers, designers, artists and all book lovers. Nicely designed Scrollino cover has the basic features, almost as a classic book, however it hides a few metres long rolled up piece of paper with an illustrated story, a comics, a children book, a notebook or whatever your heart desires. And to make it even more fun, you just need your regular pencil, to scroll down the Scrollino, to read, to make the image move and to scroll it up again.

Scrollino is an exciting journey of reasearch, design and experimentation with paper and printing techniques, resulting in an unexpected yet fully user friendly mixture of conceptual art, literature and book design. Scrollino brings a challange not only to its users, but also to writers, graphic designers and artists to create new content in a completely unconventional way.
