Re: [BKARTS] Publisher's Weekly article on "The Future of the Book"

It seems they are thinking of the book as the information contained in it rather than the whole package. I would only consider the information to be comparable in concept to the paint in a painting. It is pretty important but not the whole thing by far. The concept, the execution, the substrate, etc all work together to make a painting. The information combines with the images and materials and formats to create a book, but it is not the "bookness", it is not the thing that makes a book a book.
