Edited by William S. Peterson, 'The Well-Made Book is a substantial collection of all of Updike's writings on the arts of the book. Updike himself reprinted a few of these pieces in 'In the Day's Work (1924) and 'Some Aspects of Printing Old and New (1941), but many of his excellent essays and lectures remain buried in obscure periodicals and pamphlets, and some have never been published before in any form. William S. Peterson has now located and assembled this material- much of which will be new even to those readers who are familiar with Updike's writings- and has carefully edited, introduced, annotated, and indexed it.
