The school book phenomena

I’m trying to learn how to use Inkscape on Ubuntu Linux to create some of the graphics I do for creating web sites. While fiddling with Inkscape, I thought donned to 😉 dawned on me about “the school book phenomena” — we’re actually experiencing a technological revolution on the way we use them.

It’s funny that “small children would tug along humongous bags to carry around their textbooks. But as we seem grow into bigger more abled bodies, we also see them carrying less and less of those large books.


So I decided to create a cartoonish image from Inkscape (not that it’s related to the sort of graphics that I am trying to create for web sites 😉 ) about the “School Book Phenomena”. Or should I say the evolution of the text book?

Not that it’s going to win awards or anything but it sure is fun to be able to create it with Inkscape and think about how technology has impacted on children.

Note: I used Inkscape on Ubuntu Linux to create the graphics. It is such a great graphic tool for creating website graphics such as backgrounds, logos and buttons. I even use it to create the layouts of web sites. 🙂
