From the introduction: We live in a time when the physical object of the book, marked, as it is, by the process of its making (transubstantiation of natural materials) and use (coffee stains, notes scribbled in a margin, bent pages) is giving way to an apparently immaterial, a-historical, eternally renewable electronic version. Many bemoan the loss, but few seem to comprehend that this is merely an indicator of a far more radical alteration in our perception of time and space.
Steve Tomasula’s multimedia novel TOC (design by Stephen Farrell, programming by Christian Jara ), newly re-released as an iPad app, utilizes the same technology that has fostered this shift to create a compelling, thought-provoking work about the nature of time.
