Art director Vince Frost thinks so: 'The book has been replaced already. A book is an old-fashioned form of communication. We are all writers and publishers. We make our own content and share it with the world with ease. It's a break-down of traditional monopolies that have controlled our literary diet for too long.'

 

Fitting, Frost has art directed a new book called Futuretainment, which is about the amazing things that have happened and are happening in the digital world.
