Frank, I'm so happy you enjoyed reading the book! That's another thing I love about print. I gave you the book last fall, and was confident that it would politely and quietly await the perfect moment for you to open it and read at your leisure. No worry that it would get buried in a flood of newer email messages or Facebook posts and be lost forever. I made the book as a companion to a presentation I did last summer at the Benetton Fabrica Design Research Center in Treviso, Italy. They taped the presentation and it's watchable online. But unlike the book, it takes control of time for about 50 minutes, and does not allow time for the viewer to dwell on a photograph or think about aspects of the story that require it. However, anyone who wishes to watch the presentation can find it here: https://vimeo.com/138757286

Hi Frank great point I have 100's of thousands of photos on my 8 TB NAS device it has redundant disks but I freaked out last week when one of the HDD's died ad it took over 24 hrs to rebuild. I just read an article that scientists have figured out a way to store images in DNA! Yes you heard me right does this mean I can store all the photographs in my body and they'll die with me?

Frank, never forget, printed material must be converted into a pleasing, marketable form. That operation is called Bookbinding.
Yes, I agree with you that printed books will prevail.
Digital printing did open many new endeavors, especially for precious photographs. I had the pleasure to work with an international committee, their main purpose being, to establish standards for photo books, guaranteed to last 100 years.
