Coinciding with the paperback launch of Diamond Street: the hidden world of Hatton Garden (Hamish Hamilton) Rachel Lichtenstein has developed The Diamond Street App - a freely downloaded GPS activated rich media digital app for smartphones and tablets, which takes readers on a journey through both the historica jewellery quarter of Hatton Garden and the stories in Diamond Street.
This beautifully produced and designed app is the first of its kind, an immersive and embodied publishing model enabled by new technologies that transforms content from a literary non-fiction book about place into a dynamic interactive walk around the city streets. Part new media experience, part walking tour, this location-based app fuses text, documentary film and image with real-time interaction.
The Londonist describes it as 'witchcraft in your pocket'.
