Vook, the startup which has developed a multi-media platform for books that mixes video, pictures, and social media with traditional text, has raised $2.5 million in funding.

Investors include Ron Conway, Kenneth Lerer, chairman of the Huffington Post, Maples Investments, Baseline Ventures, and Founder Collective. Here is the press release.

I spoke to Vook CEO and founder Brad Inman recently about the company and the proceeds of the funding.  He says that the funding will allow the company to build out distribution, keep abreast of new technology, and stay current with content acquisition.
