“Geek Dad” Daniel Donahoo writes on Wired.com that…

[Between Page and Screen] reminds me of when I first discovered hypertextual writing. It was fascinating to see how words and narrative could do different things and be twisted and turned and controlled by the reader. This project is the brainchild of literary experimenter Amaranth Borsuk and designer and developer Brad Bouse and is effectively a book of augmented-reality poetry. It is a joyfully self-referential art project that examines what takes place between the pages of the book that bring words to life on the screen when captured by a computer’s webcam. That capturing is a little stilted at time: the words flicker in and out as you try to move the image on the page in the right way. There is something enjoyable in the physical nature of the puzzle.
