Scrolling Forward: Making Sense of Documents in the Digital Age
Summary: By focusing on the “document” in history, the author explores what this simple concept reveals about the people who use it every day, tracing its evolution from the handwritten correspondance of the nineteenth century to the digital documentation of the modern era. 15,000 first printing.
Personal note: One of my favorite books related to written communication. The author does a fantastic job exploring how communication has changed over time. It’s a perfect communication of physical retail, typography, the internet age and everything in-between.
