Open Access PDF
The Future of Text in PDF is available to download for free (no cost, all rights are retained). The PDF edition is optimised for reading in the Augmented Text ‘Reader‘ macOS application but can also be read in any modern PDF viewer. Why PDF?
Hard Copy, Kindle & Archival
The Hard Copy & Kindle editions are available through the Amazon Print-On-Demand service and on Amazon Kindle. Please search Amazon for ‘The Future of Text’ since this is better for the book’s rankings than following a link from here. The book is also available on archive.org: archive.org/details/the-future-of-text-book/page/n3/mode/2up This page is COinS enabled.
EPUB is also available.
A .liquid document is also available for download and use. This is the native document format for our macOS word processor Author, where we edit this work currently. We did not use Author for volume 1, we used Adobe InDesign, so this .liquid file does not include images or the timeline. It is included here for experimental use, since this document is a wrapper of useful metadata of JSON etc. for use in Metaverse/AR/VR.
The Book In 24 seconds
For fun, here is the book in video form. You can actually read it if you make the video full screen and go through it frame:
If you have any questions email the editor Frode Alexander Hegland : firstname.lastname@example.org This is a passion project and I’m passionate about improving the book where possible.
