Paper Bullets: Newsbooks, Pamphlets, and Print Culture
This chapter explores the strong metaphors used to describe newsbooks, their relation to pamphlets, and some of the more incisive critiques of the press. These paper bullets show that the newsbook coalesced in relation to other printed forms, and that readers recognised the rules of the form, the commonplaces that surrounded its reception, and understood that these reflected the place of the newsbook in society. They are more coherent than the perceptions of subsequent critics.
