Not a day passes without the future of the book being mentioned in the news. It is not always headline news. Mostly it isn’t — unless it is the launch of a new e-Reader, such as the news that came out last month that Kobo was partnering with W.H. Smith. Besides such items, there is a noticeable, steady stream of announcements, discussions, articles in the media – and particularly the social media – about the book, where it’s headed, how it’s evolving and whether it will survive.

"Being a London writer is more like being a London editor."
Instead of establishing causal connections, this comics montage rearranges and juxtaposes dialectical image and text producing profane illumination, allowing Sinclair and McKean to re-present a historiographical vision of history that Benjamin would have recognised as related to his own methods and subjects.
