Click to preview The Time Machine photo book

Time Traveller Andreas Schmidt has brought you a book from the future and from the past. The Time Machine features photographs of Schmidt's Samsung mobile phone, taken by the artist in his studio in London on the 5th of November 2011 over the period of less than one hour during dusk. Details of these photos—the depleting battery icon, the changing background light—subtly show shifts in time, documenting the book being read at a particular time and place by a helpful fellow reader, who scrolls through the screen for us. Now you can enjoy the entire electronic version of H.G. Wells's classic as a book again.
