Book of Books by Abelardo Morell

Book Description

"A visual tribute to the printed word, this sumptuous ode to books will be irresistible to anyone who treasures the feel of fine paper and the special allure of a clothbound volume. A BOOK OF BOOKS showcases Abelardo Morell's extraordinary photographs of unusual books, like an impossibly large dictionary, illustrated tomes whose characters appear to leap off the page, and water-damaged books that take on sculptural form. Bookish quotations by Hawthorne, Borges, Cocteau, and others accompany the photographs throughout."
