8/1: reading some articles

...about the physicality of books, interacting with books, and book-binding.  They were on my summer reading list because some students who are doing a book-binding project with me wanted to read them so I thought I'd read them, too.  They were fun to work through, and I'll admit it was gratifying to see that a lot of what other people say resonates with the things I've done and thought in regard to book-making, book theory, and book history over the years.  It's reassuring to know that I'm not out in left field--or if I am, I'm not alone out there!
