BookWorm, the elementary e-book reader?

Daniel Fore (aka DanRabbit), one of the members behind elementaryOS, uploaded a Mockup under the name of BookWorm to his deviantART account, which appears to be the interface of an electronic book reader; is this a new application of the elementary project?

Since a time ago, DanRabbit has been publishing some of the advances that were made in elementaryOS in its deviantART account, there we have seen the birth of postler, dexter, wingpanel, plank, among others, so BookWorm could well be the first glimpse of what the future would be reader of books.

Sadly, there is no written code to support this design so far, but visually appealing applications like this have been part of the success of iOS and Mac OS X, so why wouldn't they benefit Linux if they were also developed for? this? For now, talent and ideas we have already seen that there are.

    Beautiful! I don't think they achieve that level of aesthetics using GTK + 2.16 😛

    But GTK + 3.0 is already here, you could also use custom graphics if the GTK + widgets are not enough

    Well yes, in fact the "elementary calculator" is drawn with cairo, and as a result it looks completely different from everything else, and for the better, that GTK + is already feeling old.

    In fact, for elementary's own widgets they use libgranite, which is a library that provides some widgets for elementary applications. I understand that these widgets are drawn with cairo, so everything that gtk cannot do, they do with cairo.
