World Book Day 2016

The April 23rd is the World Book and Copyright Day, an opportunity to recognize the power of books to change our lives for the better and to support books.

"A book is a link between the past and the future. It is a bridge between generations and across cultures. It is a force for creating and sharing wisdom and knowledge.

Franz Kafka once said, “a book must be an ice-axe to break the seas frozen inside our soul.”

A window onto our inner lives, books are also the doorway to mutual respect and understanding between people, across all boundaries and differences.

Coming in all forms, books embody the diversity of human ingenuity, giving shape to the wealth of human experience, expressing the search for meaning and expression that all women and men share, that drive all societies forward. Books help weave humanity together as a single family, holding a past in common, a history and heritage, to craft a destiny that is shared, where all voices are heard in the great chorus of human aspiration."

[extract of the message from Ms. Irina Bokova, Director General of UNESCO on the occasion of the World Book and Copyright Day] 

To read the full message and see all the worlwide initiatives visit the UNESCO website.

 

Meccanotecnica, as a leading company in Book Finishing Solutions, fully endorses this message. We believe that books, especially thread sewn books, with their intrinsic durability and lay-flat readability, should be promoted and used to spread knowledge and culture, particularly towards young people, the new generations.
