The book has been the number one information carrier for many centuries; even in the digital age, books continue to sell and continue to be objects of desire. The Book of Books describes and, above all, demonstrates the visual history of the printed book, with graphic milestones and other surprising finds drawn from the University of Amsterdam's Special Collections Library, one of the greatest libraries in the world. It is a superbly illustrated celebration of those printers, publishers and graphic designers who have extended the boundaries of their profession both aesthetically and technically, always to stunning effect.
