What is a book, actually?

I believe that the book as an artefact has a very strong notion with most people. “I would never read a book on a crappy screen” may still today be heard from a majority of people. IDEO has recently published a video showing three different concepts of future book design. Of course they are presented on an iPad-looking device. Watch this video and judge for yourself. My thinking is that we some time in the not so far away future will look at today’s books with the same kind of fascination we see the Dead Sea Scrolls.
