Printed Beauty

Even with richly beautiful and interactive apps like the Numberlys and this children’s book, we still love to curl up with an engrossing printed book – especially when well-designed, like these bold and clever covers for a Kafka collection.

Alice Rawsthorn also wrote about the enduring power of books in print and the exhibition, “The Printed Book: A Visual History,” which runs through May 13 in the Special Collections department of the University of Amsterdam.
