About the book:

This bold work responds with great originality and imagination to the problem of changing interest and technology in book making by comparing ancient design methods with modern techniques and illustrating the many ways in which books can be read and used. A blueprint for change, the volume rethinks book cultures of the past, claims that a new renaissance is just over the horizon, and shows how it will function. Combining the written word with the latest multimedia advances, this artistic masterpiece synthesizes the best of the written word from such notable writers as William Blake and Edgar Allen Poe with 860 gorgeous, full-color images from ancient and medieval cultures for a scintillating, multisensory experience. This book will have a place in the design studio, museum gift shop, classroom, and home library of art, history, and language enthusiasts.
