A Short History of Print Media

BY PAUL GIBSON
@ VOL 3 ON FEB 02, 2016

“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.
