Disappearing-Ink Books Motiviate Lazy Readers To Finish Fast

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 two 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]
