Paperweight Newspaper: Screen (Print)
In 1810, the publication of the instructions ‘To Make Transparent Screens for the Exhibition of the Phantasmagoria’ in Maria Eliza Rundell’s The New Family Receipt-Book saw the first printed use of the word screen as a media term. To mark this 200th anniversary, Paperweight made a series of offerings to our screenic gods.
Paperweight writers pulled out their pens and dusted off their ink blotters, to pour forth on the ecological, on skin, on boatology, on writing between stage and screen, on female gamers, on why displays are not screens, and on metadata, amongst other topics. Also included are Paperweight’s regular features: ‘Some Notes on Toys’, ‘Scientific Encounters’.
