Books As QR Codes

It seems rather fitting that two full length books of a distinctly surrealist nature have been encoded as QR Codes. James Joyce’s Ulysses and Lewis Carroll’s The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland are two of the twelve titles that Books2Barcodes have encoded in literally thousands of QR Codes. For each book all the QR Codes are displayed on a single webpage, with each code containing around 800 characters (Ulysses for example has 1,950 QR Codes on the page). If Salvador Dali were alive today he would surely approve of this pointless endevour 🙂

  1. I question why anyone would want to provide a book comprised of a separate QR Code for each page? This is quite labor-intensive to do, and not at all consumer friendly. At least one other provider has books that can be downloaded free in pdf format, which would be easier to produce and much less trouble to read.

  2. All I can really say is…Why? Just as Joe said, way to much work to read the book. I really see no point in this besides trying to grab some publicity.
