Empire of the Word

Last night we watched the final episode of Empire of the Word, Alberto Manguel’s TV Ontario documentary about books and printing and reading. While it has a high pomposity quotient, it’s still worth watching for the scenes of the Gutenberg Museum in Germany, especially when they run off a print of the Gutenberg Bible from the original type. (Kudos to TVO, by the way, for putting the video online).
