Washington, DC, March 16, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The new website showcases the museum’s collection of World War II V-Mail correspondence. “V” for “Victory,” a popular WWII symbol, was the inspiration for the name of this new-fangled correspondence style. The website features a flash timeline of V-Mail, an interactive flipbook that will take users through the process of how microfilm letters are created and comprehensive information about the practice of V-Mail during World War II.
“I’ve heard nothing but excellent complements on the website from staff and have already heard from a man in Pennsylvania who has used the site for more reference research,” says Lynn Heidelbaugh, Assistant Curator for the National Postal Museum, “He is planning on bringing his grandfather, a V-Mail operator vet, to the museum soon!”
LIOBmedia has incorporated a simple yet sophisticated look to the website. The website has been built using easy navigation, uniformity and accessibility to all users.
“One of the main features of the new website is the V-Mail Service in Action Flipbook,” says Lillie Fujinaga, Creative Director, “We have incorporated a Flash based interactive flip book that is set up through an XML file. By integrating the flip book technology, it makes the content an interesting and fulfilling read.”
The temporary exhibit will be displayed at the National Postal Museum starting March 6, 2008. For more information, visit http://www.postalmuseum.si.edu/VictoryMail/index.html
