web site + book + e-book, 1999
The Book After the Book is a hypertextual and visual essay about cyberliterature and net_reading/writing. Its main focus is non-linear narratives, which reconfigure the literature/book relationship starting from the very notion of volume. Works that provide programming language a textual appraisal, creations that resort to video graphics procedures in literary construction and play on the passivity and participation of the reader.
The Book after the Book was made possible by a Fundação Vitae grant and was launched at NET_Condition (ZKM, 1999). It was exhibited and awarded many times all over the world and it is considered a net 1.0 classic.
