Make it big…

In a recent discussion regarding the changes in printing, it was pointed out that the proliferation of printing tools has made it possible for just about anyone to get what they want to say onto paper. I had argued that as the ability to create items with less effort increased the amount of aesthetic concern decreased. In a similar argument I stated that as the author and “printer” became more distant, their ability to share an ideal for the final product became less likely.

Then a statement was made to the effect of my arguments having been near the statement of “high” and “low” art. Where this may be partially out of context, the truth remains that there is something to be valued in those things created by the hands of a craftsman. The ability to do something does not automatically entail that it will be done well.
