Paper-books emulating e-books

In the New York Times there’s this article about a new book publishing trend.

Tiny books that will hold in the palm of your hand – the size of a cell phone – with a horizontal spine so that you can read  with a single finger swipe – like a cell phone.

Pardon me while I roll my eyes.  Another marketing gimmick.  Just in time for Christmas.

It’s a statement of the times, when IRL emulates tech simulating reality.

For this bookseller in Budapest, I don’t think he cares much.

Budapest, Hungary. 2018
