The Printed Book as Archive of Digital Culture

A millennium from now, a massive amount of today's digital data may have vanished or become unreadable, so a collective of artists in the Netherlands is trying to ensure that modern culture is preserved until then. The collective, La Société Anonyme, has created a book called The SKOR Codex, which contains encoded sound recordings, images, and diagrams that can be converted back into usable digital information.

Only eight copies printed. Print began life as the means for setting information free; it ends as the means of capturing and preserving it.
