A Good Book

“I launched this project on Twitter in 2011. My idea back then was to use Twitter’s image upload function as a visual book diary, giving something back to the Internet and trying to counteract its oft-decried ‘cultural diabetes’. The concept is simple: every day I take my iPhone and photograph a book, old or new, that has caught my attention and that I consider relevant. The books I choose stand out with their contents, design or tactile quality. They bear witness to lasting value in the evanescent and super­ficial world of Twitter. It’s just as if the virtual universe were holding them like a sturdy bookshelf, making them accessible to everyone.”
