Book summary

A beautifully written and well illustrated panorama of book design from its earliest history to recent years. Tracing the history of fine books against a background of changing patrons, improving technology, religious and social change, and the state of the arts throughout the world.

With 176 illustrations, "The Art & History of Books" is more than a valuable reference source: it is a perfect example of expert design, cogent description, and relevant illustration. Oak Knoll's edition contains a foreword by Nicolas Barker. [via]
