From the Good Mountain: How Gutenberg Changed the World by James Rumford

The detail and the care that went into the first typeset book is wondrously depicted in this picture book biography. The illustrations are gorgeous, and the end papers are revealing, as the images morph from gold leaf to circuit board, leaving the reader with the question how will the book evolve as we go forward?

With deep respect for the past but an open mind to the future, this book struck a chord with me.
