The Design of Reading

If you love the smell of rich old books, the sound of turning a page, the creative power of cover design, or the satisfaction of putting a good book up on the shelf like hanging a picture of a happy memory you will want to watch this film.  If not, you need to watch this film. What is the future of the printed book?  Hanah Ryu Chung examines this question in the student film Epilogue – The Future of Print with a  beautiful appreciation for the art and craft of book making and the experience of reading.  Chung explores the city of Toronto and its close-knit community of independent booksellers (maybe the printed word’s biggest fans) and asks them where they believe the printed page is going.
