The book as a thing in itself

I have worked in publishing technology for more years than I care to remember and in those years have heard all kinds of prophecies about the form of the book in years to come. Many I am pleased to say have gone the way of the Dodo. I am firmly of the belief that with all the options technology gives us still the best way of delivering (in the vast majority of cases) is in the traditional book form (portable, robust, requires no batteries and with a flexible DRM).

Anyway, a blog (again, my incredible wife sent it to me) which contains lots of happy browsing for those of love the physicality of books may be found at CaiLun.info.


As a side note if like us you love books in all their forms you could do a lot worse than check out the London Artists Bookfair held usually at the ICA in London around the end of November.
