why? Tower White Rose monks machines more

why Monks?

  • "The thing that sets this product apart is its use of interactive media as an art form."
    – from a review published in The MacValley Voice.

  • Our text is beautifully illustrated, quick and deep. In one of our books Bruegel's Tower of Babel fills a virtual screen several times the size of most computer monitors. The text fits into the captions to 100 illustrations.

  • We include not just games, but also tools. The New Journal, our intensive journaling tool, is a tool that helps you explore your inner world. Sophie, our reading tool, helps you explore the world of ebooks.
