The Gutenberg Galaxy

The Gutenberg Galaxy: The Making of Typographic Man

By Marshall McLuhan

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 and with more than 200,000 copies in print. It helped firmly establish Marshall McLuhan as the original media guru.
