The unbreakable Gutenberg-Marathon-Mug


Product number: 20010164
Product Information

If you are not aware of why the marathon is associated with Johannes Gutenberg, here is the reason: the Gutenberg Bible, also know as the B-42, features 42 lines per page. A marathon is measured in 42 kilometers as the total distance, so each kilometer pays tribute to Gutenberg for every printed line of text in his Gutenberg Bible.

Even though these 42 kilometers are run in every marathon, the particularly significant fact about the number 42 belongs especially to Mainz. We find the idea of the Gutenberg-Marathon in Mainz fantastic!
