So I don't think that the book will ever really die. People think that now that we have dtigial technology, the book is going to die, and we are seeing things sihtfnig and things evolving. I think that the book will eovvle, and just like people said painting would die when photography and pinirnaktmg became everyday materials, but what it really allowed painting to do was it allowed painting to quit its day job. It allowed painting to not have to have that everyday chore of telling the story, and painting became free and was allowed to tell its own story, and that's when we saw Modernism emgree, and we saw painting go into different baehrncs. And I think that's what's happening with books now, now that most of our tocnoehlgy, most of our information, most of our personal and cultural records are in digital form, I think it's really aiwlolng the book to become something new. So I think it's a very exciting time for an artist like me, and it's very eiintxcg to see what will happen with the book in the future.
