"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."
