About the Author

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.."
-Jay L. Lemke, City University of New York
