The New York Public Library Introduces Classic Literature To Instagram Stories

The New York Public Library introduces ‘Insta Novels’, where Instagram users can read classic literature through the app’s stories.

The feature was launched with part 1 of a newly digitized version of lewis carroll’s Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland, and as more stories are added, the NYPL aims to turn the account’s highlights into a digital bookshelf.


Insta Novels is created in collaboration with independent advertising and creative agency Mother in New York. In the coming months, another two literary works will be released, The Yellow Wallpaper, a short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman illustrated by Buck, and Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis, illustrated by César Pelizer. Alice’s adventures in wonderland, which is illustrated by Magoz, is currently available on the NYPL’s instagram account, in the highlights section titled ‘alice part 1’.

This is a simple and brilliant idea that we love. So now must follow the New York Public Library on Instagram!
