“How many words can you read on a computer screen before you start drifting off or your eyes start burning?” asks journalist, magazine editor and internal communications manager Rachel Ifans.
Rachel calls print the best medium for long-form journalism (which you may have noticed is also making a comeback). She gives 10 reasons why print is back, including that it stands out from the digital crowd; it is more engaging; and it is practical – readable, transportable, rollable and foldable.
I describe four other reasons for the continued value of print – yes, even in these digital-obsessed days – in the June issue of my newsletter, Wordnerdery. Check it out and see if you agree.
