We’re visualMANIAC, a digital bookstore specialising in visual culture. We offer digital books and magazines about art, architecture, design, fashion, photography and visual culture and we think that the internet is mankind’s best invention since the discovery of fire. Although we love the papery smell of a good book or a magazine fresh off the press, we’re inconceivably drawn to pixels, their immediacy and their lightness. And that’s why we want to give you access to the best digital publications from the creative and cultural industries. Enjoy your favorite books and magazines on your Android tablet, your iPad and your computer. Add notes and bookmarks, create collections and recommend it all to anyone you want.
All of the books and magazines in our catalogue are on the cloud so that you can read them online and offline through our website (www.visualmaniac.com) and our Android, iPad and Desktop apps (the last one coming soon). There are 3 ways to access the content: free, buy, and rent. In the same way you flip through a book or magazine in a traditional bookstore, at visualMANIAC you can see a few pages of the publications for free. Because no one likes buying with their eyes closed. We also bring you a selection of top-quality books and magazines that are totally free. No tricks.
Of course, you can also browse through our collection of digital books and magazines, buy any title and read it whenever you want from your private digital library. If you prefer, you can also rent and read the publication for seven days for a reduced price. Like going to the library, but with the security that no title will be checked out.
We want to become the editorial reference platform for professionals and those interested in the creative industries and to offer the best specialized catalogue. At visualMANIAC we claim the role of the editor and the bookseller in the digital environment, so we are very careful in offering quality suggestions to our readers. We also invite recognized professionals to recommend their favorite publications through our platform and we publish our own content on art, design, and digital culture.
