It can be very fascinating, to browse in old books. However, these old books are often not accessible to everyone - which makes sense, since we won't damage them too much.
Thanks to open data, thousands of scanned books are available on platforms such as archive.org, e-rara.ch and so on. These are usually PDF documents - which is fine for research but not if you want to exhibit them in a museum.
This bookshelf Projects is a simple and cheap way to exhibit such old books with a simple computer (running Windows or Linux) and a touch screen.
