I just ordered a copy of this very exciting new book called Glitch: Designing Imperfection. I can't wait to get my filthy hands on it. I feel like this book could really freshen up a lot of my own ideas. Spreads and more information can be viewed on the website linked above.

"A glitch is the product of an error that results from a programs loss of control over its intended function. In the ongoing global quest for higher definition and faster information transfers, when a glitch occurs it is seen, accepted and usually fixes itself in the amount of time it takes for it to be noticed in the first place. Whether as a scrambled cable television delay, a page-loading error on an internet browser, a jumble of pixels on an ATM interface, or character substitutions on the screens in airports and train stations, we are accustomed to glitches as short-lived disturbances that populate our digital landscapes."

Above is a detail from a piece by the fantastic Will Hurt.
