The book and its post-digital afterlife

Thank you all once again for an interesting and deeply engaging week among the books. I’ve been carrying our conversations around with me, and–unsurprisingly–
I am seeing the anxieties of the book in everything I read.

I just wanted to share an article, What will become of the paper book? from Slate, which takes up questions of form and readership with some interesting insights on design and commerce. For those keen on meditations on everyday objects, an article in the same series makes the paper clip into a thing of perfection.
