I reread the post I published yesterday and it seems complete. It simply leads to related subjects.

Johann Amos Comenius

However, I added titles to the post and mentioned a related article. The related post is about Czech educator John Amos Comenius (28 March 1592 – 15 November 1670) who advocated combining text and a relevant illustration in textbooks. He was the first to do so. In textbooks the combination of word and art is essential.

Comenius lived after the invention of the printing-press, mid 1400s. He could therefore have the books he wrote printed quickly and then add illustrations.

He is therefore, a good example of the immense influence the invention of the printing-press had on literacy. Moreover, he was the first educator to advocate the use of illustrations in textbooks.

Adding illustrations was difficult, and they were white and black. Comenius’ books may now be read online.

I added pictures and a video to invigorate my old post. Here is our link:
