Abstract Location-based Augmented Reality could improve the engagement with real places by experiencing the visiting place in different ways through the perspective of novels’ imaginary worlds. We present a framework based on AR approaches, interwoven with a spatio—narrative analysis of novels’ content. Two cases are presented; one city as unveiled from different authors’ novels and three cities under the gaze of a single writer. We emphasize the increasing potential of novels-based AR medium for a creative and fruitful engagement with places’ identities when visiting urban places.
