Scope and content

What is a Book? What is the future of the book? This thesis investigates the nature of ‘visible language’ in relation to a book, or printed matter. I argue that language (or printed matter) is a placeholder upon which meaning is cast or ‘made visible,’ and that visibility is an effect of the interplay between imprint and reader. That the nature of ‘visible language’ (or meaning) seems irrevocably bound to its translatability, to its capacity to change shape, to its plasticity in time.
