mere freudian slips

Disappearing Ink Book: Books are very patient objects. We buy them, and then they wait for us to read them. Days, months, even years. That’s OK for books, but not for new authors. If people don’t read their first books, they’ll never make it to a second.

The book that can’t wait is a literary work printed with ink that completely disappears within two to four months of opening the package, urging purchasers to actually completely read the book shortly after they buy it. The project was developed by Argentinian small publishing house and bookshop Eterna Cadencia in collaboration with the buenos aires office of creative agency draftFCB, for an anthology of new latin american authors. Sealed in air-tight packaging, the specially developed ink begins to disappear upon its exposure to light and air.
