Dur de la couverture

Un mot de Christopher Fowler sur son blog, qui résume assez bien la raison pour laquelle les Moutons électriques se sont mis à faire du « hardback » : The e-book revolution has had some extremely positive results, one of which has been to shake publishers from their complacency a little. The big surprise was that hardback sales weren’t dented by Kindles and the like. E-books cut into the sales of mass-market copies, however, so authors and publishers have been looking for ways to offer added value with paperbacks, as well as ensuring that hardbacks are seen as attractive objects in their own right.
