Will Self-Publishing Save Print?
JANUARY 24, 2012
Last month in this blog, I made a statement that at the time seemed obvious, but now seems rash. Most writers,” I wrote in declaring that print is effectively dead , “don’t care in a meaningful way about the physical presence of a book. They just want to tell a story, or convey information, or to create works of art out of their words.”. Since then, I’ve had cause to rethink my position. Print, it seems, isn’t dead, but just retired.
