Medieval Readers

Katherine C. Mead-Brewer reblogged this on Writing Reconsidered and commented:

As a professional writer, I'm often asked what I think of the changing face of the publishing industry. Do I want to find an agent? Do I want to self-publish? Go strictly e-book? Publish "traditionally"? Really though, the question they most want to ask is: "Are books dying out?" My answer to this is always a laughing "no," simply because--while the industry is certainly changing in many ways--books have always been (and will always be) at once a source of both function and art. In this post from Medieval Books, we can see evidence of this fact in the simultaneously artful, creative, and intensely functional style of different ancient books. Today, as the internet changes our needs, demands, and expectations of books, we are also beginning to see a return to the production of artistically crafted books--that is, books produced as works of art in and of themselves. The content, in this form of publishing, thus becomes art encased in art. For just a few examples of this growing trend, check out: Anteism, Publication Studio, Ugly Duckling Press, Perimeter Books, and Art Metropole.
