How does a book feel in the hand? What does its tactility mean in a world in which rising technocracy dominates the designed environment our bodies move through? The essays in this volume—by Lars Bang Larsen, Christopher Breu, Johanna Drucker, Alessandro Ludovico, Esther Krop, Juliette Pepin, Rik Peters, and Marieke Sonneveld—explore the importance of human interaction with printed matter, delving into theory and practices in the fields of graphic design, philosophy, science and art. Also included are contributions by artists Sema Bekirovic, Matthieu Blanchard, Christopher Breu, Lieven De Boeck, Frederic Geurts, Esther Krop/De Monsterkamer, and Thomas Rentmeister, and introductions to various printing techniques in the form of fictionalized characters.
