The Hamlin Lecture: The Image and the Word

Hay Festival 2010 , 
‘In the beginning was the Word. The Word that was Creation. Its transformation into the written word came when scratched on stone, traced on papyrus, and travelled from parchment to print in Gutenberg. Now universal technology of the image threatens the book.’
Nadine Gordimer
