Why do we still make books? To answer that question so often posed today – since the digital book is constantly gaining popularity – Jean-Christophe Bailly declares his love for books. He praises the remarkable capacity of these small and… Read more relatively simple objects to contain a whole world. He attributes powers to them: each time he opens a book, something is sure to appear – a story, a poem, a reflection, an explanation. Opening a book is like boarding a ship; it will take us on a journey – we don’t yet know where – but each time we do it our world gets bigger. The enthusiasm of this short text is highly contagious. Its great merit is to make us all want to rush and open our next book.
