I’m just back from Distripress, the international publishing conference. This year it was in Barcelona and the mood, interestingly, was upbeat. The theme was “Print is Not Dead.” The speaker said that he’d been tracking print all over the world, and there is no correlation between the rise in digital and the loss in print. The correlation is with the recession. Still, I’m concerned about the lack of connection to digital that many participants appeared to have. If anyone wants to comment on this page, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
