The future of the book is folded with the future of the image but what is the current state reading? My paper explores the intricate relation between texts and images and the richness of their layering.What does it mean for reading when the world that has become a picture transforms into a world of readable images and legible (be it by humans or machines) texts (or codes, or meta-data) that are all interconnected?

    • The Present and Future of Reading• -“Either the books must go, or they must swallow us up. I calculate that, take the whole world over, from eighty to one hundred thousand books appear every year; at an average of a thousand copies, this makes more than a hundred millions of books, the majority of which contain only the wildest extravagances … Our social condition forces us to hear many stupid things every day. A few more or less do not amount to very great suffering in the end; but what happiness not to be obliged to read them, and to be able at last to close our eyes upon the annihilation of printed things!”
