21.5.13

Some (un)related words I consumed this morning before getting down to work (which operation still pending)


"You better watch yourself. You can't relax in this life for one minute."
(the guy sitting next to me talking about tripping and hurting yourself)

It must follow that every history of the book - subject as books are to typographic and material change - must be a history of misreadings. This is not so strange as it might sound. Every society rewrites its past, every reader rewrites its texts, and, if they have any continuing life at all, at some point every printer redesigns them.                                           (D. F. McKenzie, Bibliography and the sociology of texts)
