Quote of the day: Peter Florence

Oberto Gilli bookshelves

“The communal commitment to publishing a book is huge. It’s not an instantaneous 140-character ejaculation of responsive knee-jerk stuff. It’s carefully considered. And many people have contributed to determining the decency, the accuracy and the truth of what it is. To me, publishing as an enterprise is heroic and important. In a time of disputed, faked and contested fact, there is something about hardback books that remains incredibly alluring.”
Peter Florence, Hay Festival founder, Monocle
