Even though the written word on the Internet has taken the world by storm, the book continues to be a more finite and thus more reliable and steadfast alongside the ever-changing digital text. Books may be read on the computer and phone screens today and there are also special e-readers which simulate printed text, but the digital world is no match for a beautiful printed book.

Books may be made as a simple glued volume as well as a classic hardcover. The latter is like a symbol, ingrained deep in our collective conscious like the floppy disc icon for saving files (even though the younger generation probably doesn’t even know what a floppy is…).
