About this book


This is a methodical study of the material and mental limits and possibilities of transferring information and media traits among dissimilar media. Elleström proposes a model for pinpointing the most vital conceptual entities and stages in intermedial transfers involving different media types such as speech, writing, music, films, and websites.
