"Historians love pivot points, those times when energies converge and the future can unfold in stikingly different directions. Life seems so unknowable and chaotic on the near side of a shift, and then, ten years on, events seem to have aligned into the only possible outcome. I believe that the book arts are, once again, at such a pivot point." -- from the Introduction. The lecture examines selected recent works that nurture mind and body while reminding the reader of what we share in common, in the midst of our global screen culture.
