The interest here, I suspect, is just the digital representation of textual surfaces as material (having, for example, the ability to bend or some transparent quality). I think it comes down to the recto-verso formation - the idea of obverse information. CRTs, LCDs, and even most epaper prototypes are simply not recto-verso technologies. It seems a long way from here until the day we arrive at a single sheet of double-sided e-paper that might use *turning* as an interface metaphor, something like use of motion and rotation in handheld displays such as the iPhone. Until then, turning interfaces in digital text may be the nostalgic remainder of another, wholly different form of media literacy.
