OK, it sounds a bit harsh, but it’s really all about love.
I love books. Not just the reading of them, although that’s kind of the real point. I love the composition of books. Their look, smell, feel, and often sound. I stop short of tasting them, at least most of the time.
Typographers, book binders, designers, and even authors spend a lot of time making books not only satisfying to read, but lovely to behold. Something to cherish on the shelf as much as in the mind. To have and to hold.
So that’s what this blog is about. Short love letters to the beauty of books. And maybe a few stings to opportunities not met.
But just a few.
And I do hope you’ll enjoy, and if you want to, please contribute! You can judge too.
