Andrew Gorin likes a new letterpress iPad app and looks to the future:
One of the problems with e-booksand there are manyis that the form has not developed sufficiently into an art for it to allow individualism into its products. (The same was true of photography at its inception, and at one point, also of typography.) This is a fancy way of saying that most e-books and e-reading devices suck. But efforts wasted lamenting the blow these technologies deal to book culture should be directed toward new and awesome ways to reintroduce into digital media what was valuable about print media.
