Literary Snacks

Taipei-based web and graphic designer Alice Wang has created the “Quote Vendor” —a novel vending machine that dispenses bottled literary extracts just like snack food. Each plastic bottle contains an individual text quote along with the book’s title and author’s name.

According to Wang, “Qoute Vendor came from the observation that in today’s society we are becoming more accustomed to instant and short messages. Whether through text messages, or online social platforms such as facebook and Twitter, less people are willing to read long paragraphs, let alone having the patience to read though an entire book… What if we read the book for you and picked out the best parts?”
