Beschreibung

A witty, personal and entertaining meditation on the history and meaning of paper during the (passing) era of its universal importance. In PAPER: AN ELEGY Ian Sansom curates a history of paper, in all its forms and functions. Both a cultural study and a series of personal reflections on the meaning of paper, this book is a timely meditation on the very paper it's printed on. As we enter a world beyond paper, Sansom explores the paradoxes of paper - its vulnerability and its durability - and shows how some kinds of paper will always be with us.

Born in Essex, England, Ian Sansom is the author of the popular Mobile Library Mystery Series. He is also a frequent contributor and critic for The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The London Review of Books, and The Spectator. He is a regular broadcaster on BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4. He studied at both Oxford and Cambridge and is a former Fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge. Currently, he teaches at the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry at Queen's University in Belfast.

Praise for 'Paper': 'Engaging and dynamic' Andrew Martin, Financial Times 'Wonderfully diverting...Splendidly dense with fact and thought' Steven Poole, Times Literary Supplement 'Sansom's scholarship is prodigious; his enthusiasm inexhaustible...He can make one laugh out loud by his placing of a single word' Daily Telegraph 'A collection of ever so erudite, witty, chucklesome essays, rich with digressions and asides, on paper, in many of its guises, that seeks to refute - and does refute - the idea that we are moving towards a paperless world' Bookmunch
