Item description for A History of Writing And Painting: From Cave Paintings to Pixel by Fratelli Alinari...
The history of writing and printing is part and parcel of the history of human communication. Three revolutions mark this development: The invention of writing to capture the spoken word. The invention of book printing to publish and disperse information to a broad audience. And the invention of personal printing to personalize content and to allow for individual creativity. This book describes the development of writing and printing from first attempts in prehistoric caves to the early writings of long gone cultures, the monasteries and their writing rooms, Gutenberg's invention of moveable type, to the modern private printers in offices and homes.
