Among critics and public alike, there appears to be a growing disaffection for the magazine Eggers founded, Timothy McSweeney's Quarterly Concern, for its accessory website, and for the values that McSweeney's is thought to espouse.

    The company's archives, including rare material from its founding and its early history, are held in the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas. At the same time, the book steers clear of bibliophile nostalgia and technological euphoria as it follows writers, designers, and publishers in the process of shaping the surprising history of literary bookmaking after digitization.
