Gottschalk: Johannes Gutenberg. Mann des Jahrtausends
A biography of the inventor to mark the 550th anniversary of his death
Few inventions have changed our lives as dramatically as the invention of printing with moveable type. With his first printing press Johannes Gutenberg heralded a new dawn, making mass communication, information and education possible for all. The genius behind the idea has been deeply obscured by the passage of time, however. Only a few details about his life are known. And yet it is possible to rediscover Johannes Gutenberg 550 years after his death. Maren Gottschalk has gone is search of the Man of the Millennium – and of his invention.
Maren Gottschalk: Johannes Gutenberg. Mann des Jahrtausends. Hardback, 160 pages, Böhlau Verlag, 2018. German edition.
