Bibliophile Bart Van Aken has been collecting quotes about reading for several years. This book contains his own personal selection. Including such declarations of love as ’Reading is that fruitful miracle of communication in the midst of solitude’ (Marcel Proust), surprising, witty statements like ’Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read’ (Groucho Marx) and wise statements to mull over, including ’We can destroy what we have written, but we cannot unwrite it’ (Anthony Burgess). Every quote is presented in a unique, original and tailor-made design by Dooreman, with an adapted font or special letter shapes. Where applicable, the quote has also been provided in the original language alongside the English, with a brief explanation, such as the author and context.
