A collection for the general reader and the specialist, A Book of the Book is an accessible and erudite set of readings on the book as a mythic and material object. These texts comprise a vivid exploration of the poetics of the book, a multi- faceted study nur- tured by the liter- ary and ethno- graphic scope of its editors’ vision, that argues compellingly for the continued survival of this most mundane and metaphoric of artifacts ... this will be the definitive collection for decades to come. —Johanna Drucker T H E R E I S n o o t h e r c u r r e n t b o o k I d r a t h e r h a v e i n m y l i b r a r y ! —Marjorie Perloff
