demandProduction line set up for the scanning, lay-out (in Scribus of course!), printing and binding of The Continuous Present

On May 18-19 The Continuous Present was printed-on-demand at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht. This publication was developed in the context of The Tomorrows Book, an ongoing investigation into the possible futures of reading, publishing and designing books.
Tomorrows Book according to Harrisson:

  • Books are coded ensembles of codes (language, typography, softwares…).
  • Independance of thought depends on independance of the codes.
  • Tomorrows book depends on this independance.
