Disappearing-Ink Books Motivate Lazy Readers to Finish Fast

By Molly Oswaks on at

A new anthology of Latin authors, forthcoming from the Argentinean publishers Eterna Cadencia, is being printed in such a way that each book practically demands its readers full attention and investment.

The publishers have identified a special ink that fades from sight after coming into contact with air and sunlight, cutting the life of an opened book short at just 2-months visibility.

"The Book That Can't Wait"— as the project is called — aims to afford debut authors the attentive audience they so require, if they wish to see even marginal success. [PSFK]
