UCL Lunch Hour Lecture

Do books have a future? Professor Iain Stevenson (UCL Centre for publishing)

For almost six hundred years, the printed book has provided humankind with education, entertainment, information, and occasionally guiltier pleasures.
The supreme achievements of culture as well as society's day to day needs have depended on print on paper as their essential medium. Today, however, the supremacy of Gutenberg's technology seems under threat from a range of electronic devices and alternative media. The lecture looks at whether books can survive or have they reached the end of their shelf life?
