A Short History of Print Media

PRESENTED ON FEB 02, 2016
IN CAMBRIDGE @ VOL 3

“Before that in 1620 they started publishing newspapers. It didn't take long before it caught on in the provinces. The provinces loved newspapers because everyone likes to gossip and see what was going on.”

In A Short History of Print Media from PechaKucha Night Cambridge’s 3rd Volume, Presenter Paul Gibson takes us on a whistlestop tour of the world of print media. From the first newspapers, funny headlines, to some seriously provocative print ads, though a lot has changed, it's clear some things have remained consistent.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, February 18th, 2016.

Artist Stories

BY PAT ROGERS
@ VOL 20 ON JUN 02, 2017

While writing for a newspaper, Pat Rogers decided that the print industry was becoming too unfriendly for artists, especially local ones. She decided to try out a new medium--online web publishing, and with that, Hamptons Art Hub was born. Hamptons Art Hub has now grown from artist columns to a sprawling website promoting local art and artists.
