"This collection takes as its point of departure the proposition that one can, in fact, tell a book by its cover. The contributors examine the ways in which the material qualities of books — including typography, paper, bindings, layouts, and promotional copy — as well as their editing, production and distribution profoundly affect how they have been read and understood."
