Hypertext Revisited: Luminous Airplanes

Hey everybody,

Hypertext as it existed in the 90s was not particularly successful, as we discussed in class on Tuesday. More recently, Paul La Farge made a new foray into the concept with what he calls “immersive text” (mostly to distance it from the bad rap “hypertext” got in its earlier forms). He discusses what prompted him to attempt such an unpopular form on his website. The book, Luminous Airplanes, is available in physical form, but the online version has more content and extends farther in time. You can check it out at luminousairplanes.com.
