For the curious mind, here is where I found the reference about wooden books in the 18th century . By the way, it is one of the richest book about our collective memory I ever read. We don’t discover a landscape, Schama says, we re-discover what we know from myths,history,paintings,movies…It is abundantly illustrated. Of the 3 parts: wood-water-stone, I think the author was best inspired by the forest.
