In this 'New Media Age' the screen has replaced the book as the
dominant medium of communication. This dramatic change has made
image, rather than writing, the center of communication. In this
groundbreaking new book, Gunther Kress considers the effects of a
revolution that has radically altered the relation between writing and
the book. Taking into account social, economic, communicational and
technological factors, Kress explores how these changes will affect
the future of literacy.
