    With the start of the academic year and being surrounded by pages of all sorts, it seems fitting to comment on my recent return to Bonnie Mak’s How the Page Matters. Using thought-provoking metaphors such as “interface” and “a thick network of expressions,” Mak demonstrates how taking the page as an object of study enables scholars to bypass disciplinary and linguistic divisions that had often characterized the history of the book. This book provides a useful introduction to book studies for students and offers fruitful analytical frameworks and re-framings for book scholars.

    What is a book you have recently returned to that has impacted you anew?
