Technology & Industry

Before the invention of the printing press, information was not easily accessible to the majority of people in the world. "Inventing the Printing Press" will teach young readers what life was like before the printing press was invented and how its invention transformed the lives of ordinary people. This fascinating book features full-colour photographs and illustrations that accompany the easy-to-read text. The topics include: cuneiforms, tablets, scrolls, and codices; the first presses, including Johannes Gutenberg's press and moveable type; early and present-day book making processes; print in daily life; types of presses, such as the Stanhope and Columbian; computerised printing; future printing technologies.
