Event Details

BookCamp09 is a user-generated conference sponsored by Penguin UK and cohosted by Russell Davies and James Bridle. The purpose of Bookcamp will be to consider the future of the Book as an object and examine it's ongoing role as a delivery mechanism for stories, information and entertainment. Participants and self-selected guests will choose the agenda for the day, forming breakup groups to discuss and potentially create future book technologies.

We're inviting authors, typographers, cover designers, printers, technologists, retailers, literary agents, publishers and geeks to come along and consider if and how technology can transform and perhaps improve on The Book. Will print on demand mean the end of the bookshop? Will ebook technology allow everyone to be their own publisher? Will printed books go the way of vinyl and become collectors objects? Are games the new novels? And, most importantly, what is the use of a book without pictures and conversations?


You can visit the BookCamp wiki and add your name there and suggest themes, strands, projects or ideas you might like to share. If we're out of tickets check back in January as we might be releasing more closer to the date and you can email us at bookcamp@uk.penguingroup.com with any other questions, comments or suggestions.
