"... you don’t so much read this book as engage with its lively illustrations, photographs, and paintings, its pages and pages of gilt-edged book spines, titles, bindings, and dust jackets, its myriad typographies, its brilliantly colored and nuanced fly patterns, and its full-page reproductions of rare books in various angles of repose."
