With the advent of e-readers, we all dreamed that we would soon become something like Leonardo da Vinci, i.e., universal people. No longer would we have to seek out new books, spend money on them, and drag that weight from place to place.

But Italians are not capable of doing anything bad for a long time - open to experimentation, they took a risk and created a new aesthetic.
Designers are different. Some will satisfy any whim of the client, just to make money. Others stubbornly and uncompromisingly will insist on their own, not paying attention to your twitching eye.
