In this excerpt from Warren Lehrer's Keynote presentation at the 2013 NY Art Book Fair Conference at PS1 MoMA, Lehrer describes some of Bleu Mobley's entrepreneurial attempts to preserve and advance the book—at least as an object—at a time when books and long-form-reading seem to be endangered species.

A LIFE IN BOOKS: The Rise and Fall of Bleu Mobley is an illuminated novel written and designed by Warren Lehrer (2013, Goff Books). The novel includes 101 books within it all written by Lehrer’s protagonist—Bleu Mobley—who finds himself in prison looking back on his life and career.
