Ancient Marginalia: The Eternal Ellipses - Print books encourage finality. Digital reading experiences don’t have to

Ancient Marginalia: The Eternal Ellipses - Print books encourage finality.  Digital reading experiences don’t have to | Diseño editorial | Scoop.it

Scholar Walter Ong, in working out the many significant differences between ancient oral culture and the print culture we inhabit, astutely states that “Print is only comfortable with finality.”  Ong observes that “print encourages a sense of closure; a feeling of finality which has reached a state of completion.”  Print does this even more so than the imperfectly copied and ceaselessly varying artifacts of the scribal era.  Nothing says ‘this is it and that is that’ like millions of identical unvarying and static copies.

Joe Wikert's Digital Content Strategies: When will ebook covers evolve?

Joe Wikert's Digital Content Strategies: When will ebook covers evolve? | Diseño editorial | Scoop.it

The current book cover was designed for the physical world, of course. It serves as a billboard on the shelf for those rare instances when the book is face-out in a store. Covers are intended to be as unique and memorable as possible, selling the key features of the product. But they're also designed to be a lot larger than ebook covers ever appear on screen. So what happens when a print book cover that's 6 X 9" is reduced to the size of a postage stamp? Details are lost, the selling impact is diminished and the branding impression is compromised.

Genre Fiction and Digital Publishing: A Marriage Made in Heaven

Genre Fiction and Digital Publishing: A Marriage Made in Heaven | Diseño editorial | Scoop.it

Along with the continuing growth of digital publishing (numbers for 2012 showed a 44.2% increase over 2011) has come, according to Wired.com, an increased focus on so-called “genre” fiction – sci-fi, fantasy, mystery and romance. Markets, which Graeme McMillan points out, “have traditionally lagged behind ‘literary fiction’ in terms of sales.” [Editor's Note: We disagree with this assertion. Romance, in particular has always had strong sales and often dominates the fiction market in real terms.]

New study: Copyright extension makes works unavailable

New study: Copyright extension makes works unavailable | Diseño editorial | Scoop.it

Does copyright help keep works available, by giving the creators incentive to make sure it’s around to be purchased so they can get money? Or does it hinder keeping works available, since there’s only one source who can permit it and if they’re not interested nobody can compete with them? That’s the question law professor Paul J. Heald set out to test in a statistical study.
