Infographic: The History of Print (Electric Literature)

Electric Literature has kindly laid out everything you didn’t know about the history of print in one infographic. And even though text-heavy infographics are one of my pet peeves (infographics are supposed to render statistics more palatable through visual representation, not hoard image captions in a messy repository), this one is pretty interesting. For example, did you know that in 2015, we print more words every second than the global population printed in an entire year during the 15th and 16th centuries?

For more wordy infographics from Electric Literature (and another of my pet peeves, by which I mean Tolkien), trot over here.
