The physical book you'll hold in your hand will be made in a factory. Mostly by machines. No letterpress printing on artisan paper folded and hand-sewn and personal. No— the book will be printed by machines— collated, glued, and bound by other machines— spat out onto a conveyor and slid to the end of some line in some factory somewhere, fast, efficient and cost-effective.
But consider that in some warehouse in—I don’t know, Cincinnati—there’s a forklift operator loading 2-ton pallets of paper with his hi-low into the back of a semi-trailer, just trying to get through his shift so he can get to the bar and drink away the knowledge that his grown kids still hate him because he drinks too much. There will be a shadow of that man in the book.
