Re: [-empyre-] C. S. Peirce and Code

around the 16/10/05 Christine Goldbeck mentioned about Re: [-empyre-] C. S. Peirce and Code that:
By the way, are you seeing what is happening to mainstream print books these days? Novels have pages of postmodern style art, photographs, etc ... and OUTSIDE the margins. A return to chirographics, perhaps?

or an anxiety for the book in the late age of print. the book is now a designed object, something expressing delight and wonderment, precisely because it is no longer sufficient to be merely a book (with its protestant black on white of a perfectly *functional* typography). This is the book as a fetish, like a nice pair of shoes...
