Writing looks different but it still has meaning

When thinking about the word Text and the definitions we have reviewed a few things kept resonating with me. The idea that a text is something that is created and has substance (texture) meant that texts in the past and today might look different but they still hold the same importance.  Then I stumbled on the video below.  It displays various texts forms and the narrative shares parts of different stories (from that publisher, Hachette) to illustrate that we still receive meaning from the stories regardless if it is on a scroll, a book, or a screen.  Wow!
