It’s a flat object, made from a tree with flexible parts, on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. 
But one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person.

Across the millenia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head. 
Directly to you.

Binding together people who never knew each other. 
Citizens of distant epochs. 
Books break the shackles of time. 
A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.
