Reading has a long history, marked with shifts in inscription and language and with evolutions in the architectural typology of the library and reading room. How - and what - we read changes over time. Towards a New Art of Reading imagines a future state of readership, affective reading - capturing and illustrating instances of affective reading through the creation of five reading rooms. These speculations do not aim to predict a singular future of reading, but rather position a possible one - alluding to and depicting a reality based on reciprocities identified in past and present forms of reading. These series of instances, or reading rooms, outline a possible, expanding universe of affective reading.
