Booktwo – Investigate The Future Of Literature And The Publishing Industry

Posted in art, blog, Media by aldorf on December 1, 2011

The book is dead. Long live the book.

Founded in September 2006 by James Bridle, booktwo.org exists to investigate, analyse, catalogue and debate the future of literature and the publishing industry.

Booktwo.org was founded out of a frustration with the failure of trade publishing to engage with new media and technology, a frustration reflected in the first essay: Birth Pangs of a new Literature. Over time, the industry has started to change, but booktwo.org continues to champion and challenge new literary forms and new publishing models.

James Bridle worked in a number of roles within and outside the publishing industry, from publicity and marketing to editorial, and from online strategy to web application development and production. His personal site can be found at shorttermmemoryloss.com.
