What makes a book a book? Is it just anything that stores and communicates information? Or does it have to do with paper, binding, font, ink, its weight in your hands, the smell of the pages? To answer these questions, Julie Dreyfuss goes back to the start of the book as we know it to show how these elements came together to make something more than the sum of their parts.

Great-The evolution of the book – Julie Dreyfuss
  1. I like these type of animated videos 😎😎

    Mind blowing video

  2. A physical copy is way better as compared to an e-book.

  3. Reading a physical book has a distinct kind of vibe which can be never be experienced in kindle.

  4. I love this video I’m not like in six grade because I love this video and share😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😘😘😘😘😘😘πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ’–

  5. I personally believe nothing at all can beat a physical book.
    it is what has the vibes.

  6. Books in general are words, images, and topic stalked for readers, not paper or skin.

  7. Helllllllllloooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. who heres watching this for virtual school

  9. I like digital pdfs for academics as it’s less expensive and more convenient and hard cover for novels and stories for leisure reading

  10. Although this might be a controversial opinion, for me personally, nothing will ever replace the feeling of a physical book. The smell of the pages, the ink delicately imprinted on the ageing paper, the cover rubbing against your hands, are some of the many features that help me enjoy a good book, be it an enticing novel by Jane Austen, or a captivating book by JK Rowling, a physical book is a crucial part of the experience of reading. Yes, I'm definitely pro e-books, but I must say, I (partially) use reading as an escape from devices, and clearly that isn't an option with e-books. Moreover, although admittedly e-books do come very close, reading the actual words from a physical book is better. I tried reading an e-book once and it soon provoked a headache. This might not be the case with all (as I'm sure it isn't), maybe the quality wasn't great, or maybe it's a personal thing, but clearly e-books aren't the way to go for me!

  11. I don't think devices are "trusted" like books. Books can listen to you. E-books can't. Yes, e-books are easier to access. But the struggle to open and keep the book without it closing adds to an experience which creates a sort of problem to solve. When you'll ask an avid reader why they'd prefer a physically book to an e-book which has the same words- they don't really have an answer. Just assumptions they make based on experience. So you could think of it like an emotional response.

  12. I read the digital copies for what I have to read and read the physical book for what I want to read.

  13. Physical books are good because they can’t be modified or erased easily like digital files can. I’m addition, physical books can be read and passed from person to person without electricity. Physical books are also easier to use as references as you can simply flip the pages back to a highlighted page.

  14. funfact:
    1 GB of space can store 3334 average sized books
    average library has around 10-12k books
    so 1 average library can fit in your palm, and yet we chose not to read : (

  15. Very interesting hm……….m

  16. So it seems there are two different πŸ€”concepts(?) in my mind that come up when I think of books, one is the digital knowledge itself and the other is the physical medium πŸ₯° I love both.

  17. Others in their free time: Play video games

    Me in my free time: Bury myself into a book and forget the whole world

  18. oh come on, I expected it but I wanted an opinion at the end…

  19. A book needs to be felt and experience while an e-book can be carried and I damaged. Either way, a book is both I think πŸ™‚

  21. Is the narrator related to Natalie Dreyfuss, who played sue in the flash??

  22. Imagine philosophers writing book at early 15 th century for the future generations just for people to read memes today

  23. I find physical books really attractive but I try hard to read e-books because of their easy handling. Or course, I love that time in the couch with the book in my hands but it is imposible to carry them everywhere.

  24. i personally believe the stone tablets are the best to read with, it has this weight that i just can't seem to get from any other. i don't enjoy staring at a glowing screen that ruins my eyesight or staring at a dead tree! So stone tablets work the best for me. They are cool and gives material to build my house after reading it, a plus! A shame they don't continue this method anymore…

  25. No matter how many e books are in market no one can beat the smell of paper in physical book

  26. I believe nothing beats a physical book. The touch, the flipping feel, the sound, the smell!~~~

  27. Book is the archetype of written knowledge.
