Books. They’ve been around for thousands of years and show no signs of retreat, unlike their analogue cousins. What do they do right? Could they be better? What would a book look like if it were in Blade Runner. Do you want to know? Then join Blurb and Jotta on the 26th at the Whitechapel gallery.

Particularly intreating to you, as a well read techie, is Noot. They’ve create a book with pages which gradually blacken over a period of bout 4 hours.

Purposely destroying a medium which is designed to last forever is clearly sacrilege. It’s a reminder that a book is a thing – not a bit, and can easily perish; it’s knowledge with it. The book is printed on thermal paper and uses some clever electronics which heat the pages when moved causing them to blacken.

The exhibition is on from the 26 – 28 September at Whitechapel Gallery. Go along. The deets are here.
