“Maybe what we’ll lose to digital publishing are the cheaply produced mass market printings on poor quality paper. And what we’ll gain is a new appreciation for well-designed, higher-quality hardbacks, like the ones folks at The Folio Society are putting out.” —Jack Cheng in Why Printed Books Will Never Die
