Paper Culture, the new book by journalist Andrew Korybko, offers a look at the history of the art form and the future of the book.
The book was co-authored by Korybi, a former New Yorker reporter who now teaches English at Georgetown University.
It examines what makes a book good, from its origins to its sales and reviews.
The author says the genre has “an interesting history,” from the Renaissance to the modern era.
He says the book offers a window into the changing tastes of the 21st century and offers a view of the future, as well.
It looks at the impact of the digital era and how we interact with books.
“We’re living in a time where our media landscape is becoming more and more fragmented and our books are becoming more relevant to the times we live in,” Koryba says.
He believes that digital is an area where people are making a difference, and that this is reflected in the growth of the genre.
