In short, books are banned because they’re misunderstood. ThisBookIsBanned.com team members worked with Studio 2018 designers and developers to create a website that gives readers the in-depth reading that banned books were denied in the past—but deserve today.
The website provides fresh context to give readers a deeper understanding of these books. So a more profound meaning will reveal itself to readers.
