William Shakespeare

A tradition in Spain on April 23 by the commemoration of Sant Jordi, which says it gives women a rose and the men there is a book. But economically speaking it may be best to only give roses. Because let’s be honest; all like to have a new and fresh adornment in his bedroom than a book that would make space and accumulate dust. For me on 23 April always will be the day of the book, remember that it is the date in dies William Shakespeare from the year of 1616, in the Gregorian calendar, which with the death of Cervantes has brought a bit of controversy, already do not know if he was 22 or 23 of the same month. There are people who also claims to be the day: Copyright Day of language among others. We are going to take a little history of how it has revolutionized our book; At the beginning of writing, these are painted in the clay tablets, which is believed the first to use them were the peoples of Mesopotamia, the Sumerians and Babylonians. Following these, we have to the Egyptians with the Papyrus, which was made from the stem of a silver with this same name, all his early sacred books, are obviously written on Papyrus. But nobody outdoes the enduring us Chinese contributed: the paper.

Controversial, that we made, the paper dating in historical records from the year 105 ad, but of course, some say that it is older, let 105 d.C. to give us the idea. This is made of a material that is manufactured interweaving of cellulose vegetable fibres, is used both in writing and in the printing press of which we will see later. Now, back in the new directions of Europe in the middle ages began to use parchment which had the advantage that you could write on both sides, were grouped into several spreads and it sewed to form codices were well, giving life to what we call today as a book. And as everyone has the right to transparency is to say, the right born namely, printing, and the use of incunabula (the Bible is one of those), but for the 16th century were left of use. And with the arrival of the technology comes the eBook, which I have but I am final against this. Nothing like reading and feel rich words leaves filled with sadness, excitement, love, joys and thousands of feelings experienced for the soul. Happy day of the book, buys a book, rent a book, open a book, reads a book. Source: The revolution of the book.
