A brief history of print – info graphic
A simple pictorial breakdown of the history of print and how it has changed over the ages.
Printing is often seen as an ancient invention, and relative to some things, e.g human flight, space travel, the internet, then it is. Print as we know it has been around for approximately 1,800 years, that’s around 100 years after the first ‘steam engine’ (The Aeolipile) had been described and most likely invented by the Hero of Alexandria. Print is also a relative newcomer in comparison to strung musical instruments and the first pyramids by over 2,600 years.
