About this title:

Synopsis: Part of a series covering the lives of 12 leading scientists, all of whom have made a major contribution to the world around them. The books provide reading on famous lives for children at a formative age. Johann Gutenberg was the inventor of letterpress printing using movable type - the most common method of printing for over 500 years and it is still in use today. Almost nothing is known about his private life, but this story covers how he single-mindedly developed his idea for over 20 years. Before the advent of printing all reading material had to be handwritten. Only religious leaders and learned men were in a position to read and therefore to educate others, until books could be reproduced in larger numbers. Printing opened up the world of knowledge to ordinary men and women to create a more equal society. Gutenberg left the world a printing method that was to result in a great explosion of knowledge and understanding and one which changed the course of history.
