Have you ever thought about how our lives would change if paper disappeared one day? Slowly but surely it just may. As great as electronic reading gadgets are, there is something even greater about the physicality and tangibility of a book made from sheets and sheets of paper. The smell of the ink, the cracking noise a fresh book makes when its first opened, the power of paper's ability to cut your finger... it all adds up to complete a very specific experience that just doesn't happen with e-books. Don't stop buying real books... support your favorite publishers and bookstores! Birth of a Book from Glen Milner on Vimeo.
