The End of Publishing

There's a rather dramatic video making the rounds of publishing circles, created by Dorling Kindersley Books in the UK. The video is called The End of Publishing, and it is a homage to an exceptionally moving video called The Lost Generation which we blogged about here nearly two years ago.

Please watch the video right through if you can - like The Lost Generation, The End of Publishing really makes its point after the halfway mark.

The future of publishing is a hot topic these days - so much of our industry is being affected by the digital revolution, and speculation is rampant as to where it might all end up. Ebooks, digital piracy, competing for the attention of readers in a world where content is abundant and increasingly free - all these are issues that we grapple with on a daily basis.

We'd like to know what you think about where publishing (and books themselves) are headed. Have your reading habits changed? Do you think they will evolve in the future? Do you read ebooks, or are you a traditionalist who could never trade paper for a Kindle? Please share your thoughts in the comments below (or on our Facebook page if you're reading there).
