The art of the physical book remains. Their physical forms and visual aspect broadcast messages before we even approach or open them. Some indulge in the variety and forms of typography with the dancing line of the authors brush; others delight in pigment on carefully chosen papers. Books have functions unconnected with the texts or images they bear. The physical shapes of such works prepare us for discovery, and with this you have the tactile sense of progress which aids the reader, providing more fixity and solidity to their sense of unfolding the story of the
artist who held the pen.
Allow me to paint you a picture.
You’re sitting in the absolute worst seat in a concert hall. You can barely see the speaker, and your neck is craned to an angle that is sure to inflict pain the following morning. And yet, you don’t care. You don’t even notice. You are so enraptured in the words and art leaving the speakers mouth that only the presentation matters. You can feel the people around you moving their heads or tapping their feet. Nearly every member in the audience is leaning forward in their chair. This isn’t game 7 of the World Series, or game 7 of the NBA Finals, there is no elimination or tension– there is merely the magical ability of a speaker to grab your attention in a felt covered vice-grip. You should experience it.
