According to Dieter Roehlstrate, “Martin Heidegger described books as ‘voluminous letters to friends.’ Anyone who has ever ‘made’ a book will immediately grasp the depth of feeling communicated in this admittedly romantic view of the book publishing business.”
Most publishers understand the making of a book very differently. As Karel Martens puts it, design “commissioners are no longer professional experts with noble ideals, but cynical managers with only one desire: how to make money as soon as possible.”
