Welcome to the publishers of ‘The Future of Text’ series of books and Journal. Brilliant minds from the arts, computing, politics, science and beyond have contributed articles, giving this work a breadth not seen anywhere else. This work forms the record of the annual Future of Text Symposium.
The books are a collection of dreams for how we want text to evolve as well as how we understand our current textual infrastructures, how we view the history of writing, and much more. The aim is to inspire a powerfully rich future of text in a multitude of ways today, and for the work to still have value in a thousand years. And beyond. The first volume was published 2020 and the second volume in 2021, with annual editions planned, growing from the Journal from the third volume onwards. The full list of contributors is available.
The of Future Journal was inaugurated 2022, featuring monthly articles which will be bound into future annual volumes of The Future of Text book series.
