The Book

Keith Houston

  • About

    Keith Houston’s fascination with punctuation and typography resulted in both a wonderful blog and book, Shady Characters. Houston’s history of typography reaches back two millennia to the library at Alexandria and carries on until today. More recently he has published The Book, a beautiful object that is both a history of the book and homage to the most powerful object of our time. Join him in conversation with Michael Williams.
