Gunther Kress is Professor of Education at the Institute of Education, University of London, UK.
"In his new book, Gunther Kress shows us that as reading and
writing move from page to screen, we must understand literacy not
just as a matter of language but also as motivated multimedia
design. In doing so, he reminds us that this is what reading and
writing have always been.."
