A project firmly embedded in the pop-culture debate between the merits of the digital text and the physical text, The Art of Google Books celebrates the generative nature of transmediation.

Single-topic blogs prove that isolation aggrandizes everything, and this is no different; by reading as a collector and aggregating my finds, I promote the signs of use that accompany digitized books as worthy of both academic study and aesthetic exhibition.

In other words, Google Books is more than a bag of words.

I wrote a short piece for HuffPost Books! They changed the title from The Art of The Art of Google Books to The Art of Google Books: Crazy Images Found Online.
