About Musebooks

Musebooks Ltd. is the company responsible for developing a new way of reading digital art books. Up until now art enthusiasts could not enjoy reading digitally, because the eBook format wasn’t suitable for art books and exhibition catalogues. Musebooks.world is the first digital reading experience specially developed for art books. Art lovers can switch between text view, the artwork or the pages, always allowing a choice of the most suitable reading experience. Your books are placed in your personal cloud library.

Where?

Musebooks works worldwide. Books are organised in three shops: Europe, North-America and World. This is neccesary because of rights issues.

Musebooks Ltd. is based in Belgium, at the Corda Campus technology hub in Hasselt.
