The project allowed Tacer to explore both the form of the book cover and to speculate on the function of books, as both objects and repositories of knowledge and opinion, in an increasingly digital age. Each of the 40 beautiful cover designs have been screen printed, with finishes such as hot foil stamping, UV varnish, metallic and fluorescent inks and unconventional paper stocks adding to their tactile appeal. Together, they offer both a playful glimpse of the possible role that printed books might play in our future, and a tongue-in-cheek prediction of what we might be reading in the decades to come. Tacer has also gathered the printed covers in a special, time-capsule-like limited edition box, distributed by Franciscopolis Editions, which also includes an essay written by Vanina Pinter
and Yann Owens, and an exclusive short story written by Alice Dune.
