Review of Peter Mendelsund's, What We See When We Read, a book about the phenomenology of reading and how we make meaning from words printed on the page. A visual feast using philosophy, psychology, literary theory and visual art becoming not just compelling investigation into the act of reading, but an innovative teaching manual for field of book arts.
