en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – November 2013
A witty and personal meditation on the history and meaning of paper during the (passing) era of its universal importance. As books, tickets and archives become digitised, the vitality of paper is beginning to disappear. This is both a cultural history and a series of reflections on paper's paradoxes, vulnerability and durability. Now in paperback.

'Engaging and dynamic' Andrew Martin, Financial Times 'Wonderfully diverting...Splendidly dense with fact and thought' Steven Poole, Times Literary Supplement 'Sansom's scholarship is prodigious; his enthusiasm inexhaustible...He can make one laugh out loud by his placing of a single word' Daily Telegraph 'A collection of ever so erudite, witty, chucklesome essays, rich with digressions and asides, on paper, in many of its guises, that seeks to refute - and does refute - the idea that we are moving towards a paperless world' Bookmunch
