Thanks Domenico and Ethel, I enjoyed reading your suggestions and
understand your positions.
My question is: Is there a way for new forms of hybrid publications of
dealing with the fact that books are not only dissemination platforms
for knowledge, but books are used in performative contexts like those:
- I apply for a job and want to put a printed book on the desk of the
interviewers (I do not want to recommend to them that they can download
- I read a book on a train or in a coffee house and enjoy the ensemble
of paper quality, varying lighting situations, coffee stains on paper
that remind me of something, ...
- I have to convince a sponsor for a project that I did some serious
research in the past - via a book of mine -and know that he will not
read the book or any document on lulu, link or dpr.
In other words: what are your strategies to increase the culturally
connotated paratext of the hybrid publications?
Or maybe you think this will come anyway?
