Well, we’ve come a long way since Johannes Gutenberg first decided that maybe there was a better way to reproduce the written word. Today, anyone can simply go on-line, sign up for a blog, and immediately see their words posted around the world, a far cry from monks fastidiously copying manuscripts by hand. (In fact, I’m sure they would have forsaken their vows if only they knew how easy things would get)
So, what’s Gutenberg’s Son about? Put simply: everything print related, from author bio’s to reviews, discussion of the latest in print technology (kindle, I’m looking your way), a history of the written word, and of course, everything from novels to self help to comic books (’cause in a way, they’re print too!)
Hope you enjoy the show!
