I have always loved books. As an ardent reader, part of the experience I always enjoy is the way a book feels, smells and sounds. I have a library of traditional books and am building a library of e-books, which brings a different experience to reading.
So when I came across this TED Talk by Chip Kidd, book designer at Alfred A. Knopf, I viewed it several times. With humor, a few moves and a simple Powerpoint, he shares stories about designing books and the experience of book as object. So I’m sharing it here.
