The Gutenberg Galaxy : The Making of Typographic Man
Since its first appearance in 1962, the impact of The Gutenberg Galaxy has been felt around the world. It gave us the concept of the global village; that phrase has now been translated, along with the rest of the book, into twelve languages, from Japanese to Serbo-Croat. It helped establish Marshall McLuhan as the original 'media guru.' More than 200,000 copies are in print. The reissue of this landmark book reflects the continuing importance of McLuhan's work for contemporary readers.

Marshall McLuhan looks back to what the printing revolution did to us and looks ahead to what the electronic revolution will do to us. Our world tomorrow will be utterly different, in ways we cannot even conceive. Marshall McLuhan pulls the curtain aside for us. Vision such as his is a precious gift.'
