With so many magazines going digital these days, how and why do you think that printed publications might still survive? “There is an absorption, a slowness, to books that I think that people appreciate in their lives right now. If a skillful book designer does books, you will end up with this wonderful object to have and to hold in your home. Things seem very superficial online and will eventually disappear – books and magazines are here to stay.”
