Reviews

“This volume is forward-facing in its assessment of various ‘perils’ in print culture … .  The volume is a good starting point for students of book history and print culture. Equally, it is useful for established scholars who wish to remind themselves of the sorts of topical questions being asked in this field of enquiry.” (Natalie C. J. Aldred, SHARP News, sharpweb.org, August, 2016)
