FROM GOODREADS: “Reading could have a rich and interesting future, because it does have a rich and interesting past. But if no one remembers that past, it may not mean much to the future.” This succinct and thoughtful essay is the text of a talk commissioned for a symposium entitled The Future of Reading which was held at RIT in June 2010. Written and designed by Robert Bringhurst, this limited edition is carefully crafted and letterpress printed. 450 copies, printed on Mohawk Ticonderoga paper.
MY REVIEW: A beautifully-crafted book with a beautiful message: books, reading, will always be with us, no matter what form. “Real reading and writing take place on the margins of empires,” Bringhurst writes. “That’s just how it is. You read the books, if you want to read them, however you can. And we do.” Layered with meaning and intent, not only in words but in its presentation, this treasure of a book, appeals to the fiber of who I am—reader, writer, designer, artist. If you are like-minded, you must have a copy of this book.
