Print is not dead

"Let me state this for the record: the internet is not dead. Digital will not disappear. Print will not kill the web. (...) We are in a print world now. People have now come to understand that once a print book is purchased, they truly own their personal edition of that story. There are no limitations to what they can do with it or to it. (...)

With print books, we have come to understand what it is like not to be forever leasing information. (...) By occupying space, by having weight and heft, by utilizing smells and tactility as part of their own stories, print have impact.

Unlike an ever-reproducible digital file or webpage, a physical book is a solitary experience that can only be enjoyed by one person at a time. When we finish a book, we close the cover and are left in peace; there is no online store pushing us instantly to buy and read more. There are no in-book purchases to be made as we read. No advertisements will ever pop up related to our reading experience. Numerous studies have shown that since the arrival of print, people ́s ability and duration of maintaining attention on a single idea has increased. Print is literally changing how we think, and how we look at the worlds around us. The two are engaged not in a fight, but a dance. Print or digital? That question is as redundant as asking which is better, red or green?"
