Why it’s in the Showcases: The developers said the site “was purposely designed to have a minimal feel to it. Publishers websites often have a lot of content on them so we tried to condense the amount of content shown at one point by using slide shows and a carousel.” The site has two prominent feature boxes and a book carousel that features throughout the site.
