1895 – la fin des livres?

She's relaxing on the sofa with her headphones on; her friend is listening to a novel. Between them they can get hold of pretty well anything they choose to hear – literature or music – channel-hopping from dance to Wagner to poetry or from philosophy to novels. The year is 1895 and the days of reading from printed books seem to be numbered.

Collecting Artists' Books - Corrugations: Some Speculations on Australian Tin

The artist's book is a thriving art form in Australia. While books most typically convey ideas through their text, artists' books express meaning through a combination of illustrations, typography, and the form of the book itself. In Corrugations, Australian artist Katie Clemson worked in collaboration with the poet Anne Bell to capture the essence of the land where she grew up and create a tribute to a material that has become a characteristic part of Australia's architectural landscape: corrugated iron.

Quel avenir pour le livre ancien ?

Toutefois la mort annoncée du livre n'est pas un phénomène nouveau. On se souvient en effet de l'ouvrage du canadien Marshall Mac Luhan " la galaxie Gutenberg " paru en 1967. Avec le recul on sait maintenant que la révolution informatique n'a pas vraiment eu l'effet escompté, et l'on se souvient peut-être aussi de la couverture d'une revue informatique des années 90 exhibant la réponse de Gutenberg à Mac Luhan sous forme d'un geste du bras dont la modernité n'a d'égal que la vulgarité. La PAO n'a finalement pas tué l'édition, elle a seulement opéré sa vulgarisation avec tout ce que cela implique comme dégénérescence. Car certes, pour nous qui nous intéressons à la bibliophilie, l'esthétique du livre en a quelque peu souffert, mais pas la production en terme de quantité.

We realised that editing a text in English which should be read almost as an "historical tale" is a very hard job, something totally different from the usual bibliographic descriptions with our familiar technical terms. In any case, this pamphlet will be a much more comfortable way for you to share our history with us: let's say that this text was guided by the same "Italian passion" that we have been putting in our works for a century...
