Quote-card: Postman on typography

A quote from Neil Postman, pertinent to DIY, POD, and other species of publication (and relating generally to the topic of how changes in media technology lead to social change), from the essay "Media as Epistemology"in Amusing Ourselves to Death:

"Typography fostered the modern idea of individuality . . . but it destroyed the medieval sense of community and integration."
