‘We owe so much to the book. The intellectual life of men has had in the book both its most versatile tool and its most glorious emblem.’
Gian Arturo Ferrari
A glance at the day before the presumed end of the printed book, but also an apology of the meaning, the history and the ontology of the book itself.
Gian Arturo Ferrari, the author of Libro, traces a history of the evolution of the book from the invention of writing to the present in three stages: manuscript, printed, digital.
