Aldous Huxley
[Writer, b. 1894, Godalming, Surrey, England, d. 1963, Los Angeles.]

 Advances in technology have led… to vulgarity. Process reproduction and the rotary press have made possible the indefinite multiplication of writing and pictures…. The situation may be summed up thus. For every page of print and pictures published a century ago, twenty, or perhaps even a hundred pages are published today. But for every man of talent then living, there are now only two men of talent. (1934)
