unless it's your job!
So I found this article on Nicole Hill's blog. What a fun job! I think my graphic design friend Ayumi and I should go into it together-- she could do the design and I could read books all day and tell her about them and what should be on the cover! Sounds marvelous. No but really.
So I kinda don't like the idea of the e-books. There is just nothing like the feel of turning the page of a new book. And the smell. And the way they look on the shelves. So anyways, I loved Coralie Bickford-Smith's response when they asked her what excites her the most about the future of books:
"Designers that keep on pushing forward book design and making sure new generations appreciate the beauty in the printed word. As e-books take off as a convenient way for people to read, books are going to have to work harder to justify their existence as physical objects, which is where designers come in. I think it’s going to be an exciting time."
I'm glad someone else is on my side :)
