This is an insightful and intelligent exploration of the phenomenon of news prints and printing in 18th-century France. Long before the Internet and the advent of social media, even before the invention of photography, prints were the main source of visual information. This was particularly significant in eighteenth-century France, where the dramatic rise in production and the rapid dissemination of prints played a key role in the creation of modern political culture: prints helped people grasp the essence and significance of newsworthy events both near and far. This well illustrated publication examines this phenomenon through a detailed and lively examination of 37 prints and rare books selected from the collections of Carleton University, National Gallery of Canada, and Library and Archives Canada.
