Read full description of the books:



I wish I liked this better. I wish I'd read it a decade ago, when it was new... Levy covers a huge amount of ground that is very near and dear to my own life and work; he is a computer scientist and typographer/calligrapher, he comes out of Xerox PARC in the 70s and 80s; he is concerned with the evolving definition of the Document in the digital age.

But I found this book long-winded, self-absorbed, and ultimately without much of a point. He does some yeoman duty in laying out a structural definition of what a document is, and covers a fair amount of intellectual history along the way, but the book ultimately becomes an open question about humanity's varied and historic search for foundations, and the role of books and documents in that. The last few chapters are a bit of a wander in the desert on this topic, with little to deliver.

If this book were shorter, I would have liked it better. If this book were the same length (or leven longer) and more scholarly, I think I would have liked it better. But it's strikes a disappointing balance between layman-readable and substantive.
