About this book
A witty and personal meditation on the history and meaning of paper during the (passing) era of its universal importance. As books, tickets and archives become digitised, the vitality of paper is beginning to disappear. This is both a cultural history and a series of reflections on paper's paradoxes, vulnerability and durability. From the author of the "Mobile Library Mystery Series".
What do reading a book, smoking a cigarette, throwing confetti and voting in an election have in common? The answer, of course, is paper.
