OK - this is an interesting one: Starting in 2014, Scottish artist Katie Paterson has asked a writer a year to contribute a book to her public artwork called the Future Library project. Riffing on themes of imagination and time, each work has been seen only by its author and will be printed in 2114, when a patch of 1,000 Norwegian spruce trees planted in 2014 in the forest that surrounds Oslo will be cut down to provide the paper for the texts.

Authors selected and have agreed so far include Book Club authors Elif Shafak (The Architect's Apprentice) and Han Kang (The Vegetarian), as well as Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid's Tale) and David Mitchel (Cloud Atlas). Details at link below.
