印刷は知識のアナログアーカイブ Printing-An Aanalog Archive of Knowledge
Printing has made the significant impact on the society and culture through its interaction with people in the history. Printing technology invented in China was perfected through the invention of Gutenberg's moveable metal type, and later greatly contributed to the development of human society and culture. Here, I would like to discuss the outline of printing history developed approximately some 1,300 years and contribute to a more clear understanding of the trends in contemporary digital communication and archives. In addition, with regards to the activities of the Printing Museum, Tokyo where printing materials are displayed in public. I will summarize the current state and issues particularly with display, storage, and digital archiving.
