In this fascinating study, Robert Bringhurst takes readers on a walking tour through the bramble of book design, from the mid-18th century to the present day. Along the way, he discovers a true "image trove" of identity, culture, and history. Transcending other works on the subject, Bringhurst here creates a truly national survey by bringing Canada's long history of aboriginal storytelling into a context of "book" -- a context that goes far beyond the printed page.
