The Last Book

cover

Tom Wolfe had a chapter in his classic ‘The Bonfire of the Vanities’ called ‘The Last of the Great Smokers’ featuring a man with a habit soon to be in serious retreat. Dutch photographer Reinier Gerritsen has captured another possibly vanishing habit – reading a paper book. He’s captured people on the subway reading, faces rapt in concentration. How long before everyone has their noses in an iPad?
