Print is beauty bound – even in a digital age

“The printing press democratised knowledge, and with democracy came spite, libel, destruction and violence. But it also brought a new beauty into the world, and every book that has ever been published, every sheet of a newspaper blown along the street, is part of that beauty.”

–Jonathan Jones
