For all the bibliophiles out there (that's book lovers to everyone else) - this book is for you. This strange little tome tells the story of writing, books, and libraries from the unique perspective of a book itself.

Written in a somewhat meandering style that unexpectedly leads the reader to the origin of a frequently used bookish word or a development in writing, "Book" is full of fun little revelations. Beautiful illustrations by Neil Packer help to highlight each of these topics.

"Book" is a short, enjoyable stroll down the memory lane of the book.
