The book is dead. Long live the book.
About this site
Founded in September 2006, booktwo.org was initialised in order 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.
Over the years, the areas of inquiry have broadened, taking literary and publishing models as a starting point for a wider investigation of digital and network culture.
