What is a book today? ‘Bookness’

March 15th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

‘The Unbound Book’ is een workshop en tweedaagse conference rond ‘reading and publishing in the digital age’.
The conventional notion of the book, based on centuries of print, is rapidly growing outdated. The book is coming unbound in a double sense: both freed from the bindings of the printed volume, and from the limitations of conventional text.
The entire concept of ‘bookness‘ needs reinvention. Critical cultural forces must step in to develop new models for reading, publishing, and learning.
With a wealth of exciting new possibilities, the book is left without obvious contours. Through panel discussions, presentations, workshops, and a book launch, the Unbound Book Conference brings together writers, librarians, publishers, theorists and designers to take part in defining new roles within this transformative landscape. Meer info
