Epilogue: The Future of Print

Logo for documentary "Epilogue: The Future of Print"I was delighted to come across a documentary by Hannah Ryu – Epilogue: The Future of Print. I’m convinced that my discovery of this film was a result of having read Requiem for a Book by Llewellyn King (read my reaction to the article).

The film makes a strong case for how print and the book will not become extinct, as has often been predicted.


Hannah’s words:

This documentary is a humble exploration of the world of print, as it scratches the surface of its future. I consider this a work in progress. It is built upon interviews with individuals who are active in the Toronto print community and questions whether or not they expect to see the disappearance of the physical book within our lifetime. The act of reading a “tangible tome” has evolved, devolved, and changed many times over, especially in recent years. I hope for the film to stir thought and elicit discussion about the immersive reading experience and the lost craft of the book arts, from the people who are still passionate about reading on paper as well as those who are not.

While watching the film, I could smell the scent of paper and ink in the air – now all I want to do is run downtown and go book shopping.

It really is a beautiful film and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
