Been reading a really interesting book the last couple weeks, got it from the library. It is called ‘The Book’, and it covers the history of the book, paper, printing and everything associated with a book. Probably the best read I’ve had in the last 2 years.
Another great book is ‘Longitude’, the story of the design and creation of the chronometer, it is a very good story, read it at least 4 times. Should you get a copy to read, get the illustrated version, as it is filled with the actual original chronometers made by John Harrison in the 1700’s.
