The Book Is Alive! is a survey of current thinking and innovative practice in contemporary publishing based on papers presented at the Booklive! international symposium in London in June 2012.

This event brought together theorists and practitioners from the world of publishing and artists' books to examine the current transformation of the book and its ability to keep apace with digital culture and the emergence of new modes of making, reading, collecting and disseminating "on-the-page" work. It includes an interview with conceptual artist Joan Fontcuberta, a keynote text by Artbook - D.A.P. President Sharon Gallagher and writings by Andrej Blatnik, Sarah Bodman, Marco Bohr, Daniela Cascella, Arnaud Desjardin, Annabel Frearson, Peter Jaeger, Susan Johanknecht and Katharine Mignell, Sharon Kirland and Nick Thurston, Didier Mathieu, Paul Soulellis and Stefan Szczelkun.
