The Future of the Past: Bookmarking a forthcoming title

Tom Abba and Baldur Bjarnason are writing a book — about “books, electronic textuality and materiality and is a manifesto of sorts.”

Some of it slips out intentionally in Abba’s blog.  He comments on Touchpress’s app of Eliot’s “The Wasteland,” Flipboard’s setting of design trends and Visual Editions’ app version of Marc Saporta’s “Composition No. 1.”   Here’s hoping that they also address Agrippa (a book of the dead), the work of art created by novelist William Gibson, artist Dennis Ashbaugh and publisher Kevin Begos Jr. in 1992.   That’s right, futurists, 20 years ago.
