Get Your Paper On

As e-books take over, publishers will still find a place for hard copy books, and that place is the book as art object. Even now there are several series of beautiful editions of classic works:  the Landmark series by the Free Press, which produces gorgeous volumes of classic history like Thucydides and Herodotus; White's Fine Editions, which produces cloth-bound editions of classics like Dickens and Austen; and the Annotated Pride and Prejudice, which has Austen's text on the versos and notes and commentary on the rectos.
