The Future of the Book
Lorenzo Soccavo - M21 Edition 2007 - 165 p.
The book is an object that has undergone constant evolution over the millennia. It will, during this first decade of the 21st century, undergo a revolution, comparable to that of the printing press (15th century).
After a historical perspective of the book object as a medium, from the birth of writing to the present day, the book discusses the new technologies at work in these new generation books. The new e-books available, the prototypes and their prospective are analysed. An open synthesis on the impacts and new perspectives for the book economy concludes this book.
