Ever found yourself sticking your nose deep into the spine of a loved book? Ever extolled the virtues of books by referring to that odour? Simon Groth explores the irrational fear inside everyone who has ever felt the need to leap to the unnecessary defence of printed paper.
‘The smell of paper aging, disintegrating — it’s the smell of knowledge disappearing.’
Presented in partnership with the Emerging Writers' Festival.
