(click to enlarge) Endpapers from a sketchbook I filled at the 2010
www.inter-disciplinary.net Visual Literacies conference in Oxford. Much talk of the End of the Book. Above quotation from Shakespeare’s RICHARD II: “Let’s talk of graves, of worms, and epitaphs; Make dust our paper and with rainy eyes Write sorrow on the bosom of the earth…”]
I can recommend Umberto Eco and Jean-Claude Carriere’s conversational publication This Is Not the End of the Book: ironically available in Kindl.
