              from SLVictoria Added 72 1 0

              In the age of the iPad and Kindle, the future of the printed book is under threat. Distinguished librarian Richard Ovenden of Oxford's Bodleian library examines the relevance of the physical book, and the 'book arts', in the digital age and in the context of a 21st-century research library. Is there still a place for design, typography and illustration? Is the quality of paper, ink and binding still important? Richard also discusses the works of significant pioneers and contemporary innovators in the book arts. Richard Ovenden FRSA FSA is keeper of special collections and director of the Centre for the Study of the Book at the Bodleian library. The library was founded in 1602 by Sir Thomas Bodley. Generations of famous scholars and writers have studied there, including five kings, 40 Nobel Prize winners and 25 British prime ministers. This Foxcroft Lecture was held on 15 February 2011.
