Internet browsers took some concepts from books, like the bookmarks for example. For her design diploma’s work in 2010, Maria Fischer did the opposite, she took a concept that is typically found on the internet, hyperlinks, and tried to apply it to a book.

For that purpose, she used strings to connect words with other places in the book. The results are quite confusing, although beautiful, but this book experiment does make a point. It shows how complex hyperlinks are, but also how hard it is to visualize the connections made on the Internet.
