Dictionary.com defines text as “the main body of matter in a manuscript, book, newspaper,etc., as … the original words of an author or speaker, [and] as … the actual wording of anything written or printed” (text, n.d.).
In searching for a visual representation of “text” I stumbled upon a historical documentary entitled, 17 Days: The Story of Newspaper History in the Making. After contemplating the power of text you may agree with the newscasters that “no other medium can take the place of [text] in the hearts and minds of the people” (BugglesClassics, 2011).
