Faber releases Playstation version of City of Glass

<p>Faber has released a graphic novel version of Paul Auster&#39;s City of Glass for the Playstation Portable gaming device.</p><p>Priced &pound;4.79, the novel is illustrated by Paul Karasik and David Mazzucchelli, with an introduction by comic artist Art Spiegelman.</p><p>Henry Volans, head of Faber Digital, said: &quot;The success of the PSP Comic Store has opened up a new channel for digital book publishing. We&#39;re proud to be among the first UK book publishers to release titles to the platform, not least because City of Glass is so brilliantly characteristic of Faber&#39;s publishing. It&#39;s great to see this graphic novel paired with a dynamic new platform for reading.&quot;</p><p>Paul Rhodes, owner of Orb Entertainment, who developed the new version of the book, said: &quot;In the PSP Comic Store, we have a ready-made content delivery pipeline that perhaps isn&#39;t as established in other forms of digital book publishing. PlayStation Network consumers are well-versed in shopping for, and acquiring, digital content.</p><p>&quot;I&#39;m thrilled to have worked with Faber and Faber on such a fabulously realised book. It&#39;s a title that I believe will offer something truly unique to PSP consumers, and may just challenge the perception of what a comic strip has to be.&quot;</p>
