Fine Print: A Story about Johann Gutenberg

by Joann J. Burch


Quick Overview

Carolrhoda's best-selling Creative Minds Biographies series appeals to a wide range of readers. Written in story format, these biographies also include inviting black-and-white illustrations


Before Johann Gutenberg perfected movable type, the printing press, and oil-based ink, manuscripts-illuminated or otherwise- were acquired only by those who could afford the one-of-a-kind works of art. Gutenberg made possible a book's quick and inexpensive mass production. From what little is known about the inventor, Joann Johansen Burch has written Fine Print to introduce children to the 15th century man whose ingenuity eventually made books a part of almost everyone's daily life. Her account of the printer and the people and circumstances that influenced him is a good read. Size 0.26" H x 8.5" L x 5.87" W, 64 pages
