(Introduction) 'Welcome to ReaderBook#5 – The magazine in which the search for the unique characteristics of the book is central. Our question from 'ReaderBook #1' was whether the book can stand against the advance of the so-called 'New Media'. Several hijackers turned out to be on the coast: 'Publishing on Demand', 'e-books'; digital paper and of course the internet. Also in this magazine we go deeper into the 'killer application' of the book. We'll let you sniff the bookcases of people who wish to remain anonymous (certainly after the thorough psycho-analyses that we had made). We take you through our interviews visiting a bookshop, a bookbinder, a writer/poet/ philosopher and a letter designer. You can read our post, we will give you a piece of art as a gift and as usual this time we also have pages full of stories. As far as we're concerned you can set up the tea water, bring out the pastry magic and turn this page.'
