Multimedia storytelling — engaging the eyes, ears and mind.

Bob Yorburg, profiled in the multimedia feature “The End of the Merry Go Round,” is New York’s last traditional carousel carver. With interactive maps, charts, videos, music and photos, the story draws readers into Yorburg’s colorful world and explains the evolution of a universally nostalgic amusement park attraction. The piece weaves digital elements into its narrative to create a rich and dynamic reading experience. “The End of the Merry Go Round” was designed with ReadyMag, an online interface used to create web publications. It can be accessed and read comfortably across platforms, including mobile. To read the story on your computer, expand the box above, or click here if you’re opening the page on your phone.
