Original
We did not realize that Gutenberg did not gain credit for his invention until after his death. There were so many things involved in the printing press becoming a viable alternative to handwritten books-the right non-bleeding ink on the right kinds of paper which would absorb the ink without smearing, metal that could be molded to make replications of letters so that each "e" would be exactly the same within a document though a different e was used multiple times on a page, lettering had to be created out of metal that would not change shape in the heat or the cold. Great read! Goes well with https://www.amazon.com/Johann-Gutenberg-Amazing-Printing-Press/dp/0618263519.

Great with Tapestry of Grace curriculum

One of the most important inventions, one that paved the way for the Reformation and the following Age of Exploration.

Easy to read graphic format moves well across the pages. Very fine work.

If your child chooses this for a biography book report, be sure it's ok with the teacher. "Comic book" format often isn't.
