Big City Forum, ARTBOOK @ Paper Chase, and Paper Chase Press presents:
Making a Case for the Book in the Digital Age
Wednesday, March 2nd
7 to 9pm
Please join us for a lively conversation with:
David Ulin, book critic for the Los Angeles Times and author of "The Lost Art of Reading: Why Books Are So Important in a Distracted Time"
Lisa Pearson, publisher of Siglio Press
Lorraine Wild, renowned book designer and founder of Green Dragon Office
All three presenters advocate for the primacy of the physical book, even as contemporary culture continues to charge towards an ever-changing constellation of digital media. Ulin, Pearson and Wild will discuss books as physical artifacts, and the inherent qualities that cannot be replicated in other media.
"The book has a bulk, a weight, a set of textures, a physical signature, and even a smell, in addition to the extraordinary elasticity and expressiveness of its typographic imagery and layout..."
