Link Love: I Like Books

Booksellers film

This weekend, Bob and I watched a film called Booksellers which is a documentary film about the antiquarian book dealers and the antiquarian book world. Amusingly, there are a lot of parallels between the book world and the pen world. So much of the book world has changed in the last 20 years as a result of the rise of the digital age and ebooks and the internet. In the same way that the stationery and pen world changed in the same 20 years or so. But the people who collect vintage pens or are excited by the history of these items are similar to the people in the book world. There are good things and bad things about the collecting culture in both worlds and the resurgence in interest in the physical object. I recommend this film for all of the lovers of tactile, analog experiences. (Available on Amazon Prime)
