PK at BibliOdyssey (one of my favorite blogs) digs up digital images of the Ripley Scroll which reminds me that the web is more like a “scroll” than it is like “pages”. The integration of text and illustration carry you from one scene to another as the scroll is revealed. The format of the scroll is used to tell the story. The images provide visual excitement, and a rest from reading text between passages.

High resolution images of the scroll are linked from the BibliOdyssey site.
