Those Dirty Miners in the Bookshop

"Examine it closely and you will see the ragged edges of the type, its cracks and bumps and gaps, the letters that lie crookedly, or ride higher or lower than the others, the ink's variations in depth, consistency, and hue, the motes of dust and droplets of sweat, sealed within the warp and woof of the paper, the tiny insect bodies caught as the platen came down and now immortalized as unnecessary commas and full stops." - Thomas Wharton Salamander
