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.

Posted by Jim Watts
The second Symposium on Iconic Books will be held at Hamilton College in Clinton, NY, on September 4-6. Though not all the panelists and speakers have been confirmed as yet, I've posted preliminary information the Iconic Books website. Please come and let others know who might be interested in this interdisciplinary endeavor!
