‘A Good Book’ is a growing index of publications, that stand out with their contents, design or manufacturing quality – curated by Bernd Kuchenbeiser.
“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.”
