Old New Media Readings
These are books I've been reading about old media precedents to new media forms. I've also ordered Lisa Gitelman's new book, Always Already New. Is there anything else I should be looking at? (Of course, there's history of the book and new media theory and orality/literacy and digital texts and on and on. I've got a lot of that stuff around here. What I'm looking for right now are other materials that deal specifically with the old media/new media issue.)
