Wonderful "Evolution of the Book" Chart

If you need a refresher on the heritage of the ubiquitous ebook readers, then you will be interested in checking out this "Evolution of the Book" linear chart.

According to Fastcompany, "the chart shows how primitive Clay Sumerian Tablets (3500 BC) and Egyptian Papyrus scrolls (2400 BC) evolved into wax tablet codex (200 BC), Gutenberg's printing press (1440), and more modern dalliances like the Japanese cell-phone text novel."
