My post has been written under Derick Knight’s post influence. In his post we can see the very nice example of real book. Yes, it is an old one and is not in good shape, however, it is still nice book to have and hold it in the hands.
Nowadays different kind of electronic books is just a source of information, nothing else. But real printed book is a piece of Art. The creation of it is a huge amount of love, talent and work of Writer, Illustrator, Editor, Publisher etc. And at the end of this proccess we have beautiful piece of Art which warm up the hands, the soul, and the mind of readers.
There was a nice Artist Boris Zaborov, who embodied the book as a piece of Art in the form of sculpture. Probably in time we can remember the real books only looking at his creation.
