Infinity in a reed. The invention of books in the ancient world

Spain,
© 2021.

We confirm, through this brilliant content, that the need to communicate goes back to very remote times. This is unique historical investigation into the origins of the book. While we continue questioning what the appropriate format is, printed or digital book, the dissemination of ideas has transcended thanks to writers, libraries, booksellers, readers… we all worship the book.

The literary citizens of Nation Book, will rejoice with this work by Irene Vallejo that transports us to ancient Greece, to the times of the Roman Empire, to the unforgettable library of Alexandria and to many other critical enclaves for the creation, subsistence and flourishing of the book.

More than a reference work, this is an anecdotal narrative that allows us to cultivate our passion for literature. Do not miss it!
