Books are no longer thought of as technologies when compared with Ipods and kindred devices but the quarto volume of the 17th century was a technological device as radical in its own way as the first portable media of the late 20th century. In this paper I will discuss the impact of the book as new media using Don Quixote as a story founded within early book culture that has also evolved through time and become known not only through being read but also through its replication and reduction via other media (from printmaking to film and the web).
