“Print, however, is a very different case, since the medium – the printed page – is more than just a carrier for things to be shown on some display; it is also the display itself. Changing it consequently changes people’s experience, with all the (physical) habits, rituals and cultural conventions involved. E-publishing therefore still has a long way to go before it reaches the level of sophistication which printed pages have achieved over the course of a few centuries.” -from the book Post-Digital Print: The Mutation of Publishing Since 1894 by Alessandro Ludovico
WEBWORLD, the term project for a visual rhetoric class i’ve been taking, is now “finished.” i made it in 6 days so it’s smaller than i would have liked and a little confusing in places.
despite that, i hope you have fun reading it since i wanted this to be an enjoyable comic first and something i get a grade for second. my biggest regret is not having enough time to write a theme song for it.
p.s. when you get to The Big Page i would recommend resizing your browser window if you have a large monitor. it’s more fun to navigate if it feels like it’s a little viewport into an Earthbound dungeon.
