DOG EARING

Below are a couple definitions of dog earing from different sources. One thing I found especially interesting was the idea ,in one of the definitions, about a dog ear being used to keep track of a page that was particularly meaningful or poignant to the reader and this made me think about the connection between dog earing and the physical wear on the book but also the added personal touch and sentimentality that it brings to the reading experience that is maybe lost in digital formats of books. As well as the definitions I looked at authors quotes about books that I could use if I wanted to use my font in some way to communicate ideas about a love of physical books.
