How books will change? I was imagining that tomorrow's book can be read anywhere and then if you  reverse them you can see some images. So lets imagine there is a book that is talking about an house where the novel is taking place. One wants to see this house so he/she reverses the book  and it is possible to see the house  in 3D.

Do you think we will have this technology soon?

I was just thinkig of this possibility the other day. The only tun off is that this may limit the immagination of the reader.

Hmm, good idea, but what exactly do you mean by 'reversing' the book?

What you're describing sounds a lot like the Hypertext Markeup of the early 90's, when CDs were first introduced to computers and packed with media. Basically, a program like Expedia. It sounds like the 3D model would be linked and the description highlighted so that if you tap on the description, the 3D model would come up?

Like inverting it. or maybe one can just click the page and a 3d would come out

I usually find images in many stories to be a let down. I was reading one of my favorite web stories the other day and I have a certain image in my mind... and there is an illustration added that makes it seem campy and cheesy looking.

 

I also think it's fun to see fan interpretations of characters in fan art. They all have interesting perspectives.

 

And finally as a book lover, I find the use of images to like using special effect: sometimes valuble, but just as easily becoming the point  rather than a technique for story telling.

 

Like any art form there is room for it to exist for it's own ideas, but I don't see it as replacement of even the next version of books.

Live content within small means. Seek elegance rather than luxury, Grace over fashion and wealth over riches.
Listen to clouds and mountains, children and sages. Act bravely, think boldly.
Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.
