Iconic books are texts revered as objects of power rather than just as words of instruction, information, or insight. In religious and secular rituals around the globe, people carry, show, wave, touch and kiss books and other texts, as well as read them. This blog chronicles such events and activities. (For more about iconic books, see the links to the Iconic Books Project at left.)

3D Book in Video
Posted by Jim Watts
This video not only shows off an ingenious abecedary; it also suggests a good way to display (and advertise) book art. Books and book art do not fit well into the kind of static displays favored by museums and libraries, as I've noted before. Here video solves the problem of how to show people the whole book when they can't, or shouldn't, handle it themselves.
