jan 1, 1440 - Johannes Gutenberg developed a printing press 1440

Description:

European printers used block printing to create whole pages to turn into books. It worked but the process was entirely too slow to fulfill the demand of the Renaissance. To satisfy the need for books, Johannes Gutenberg developed a printing press in 1440 that made it possible to make books faster and cheaper. Books were cheap enough that many people could buy them which created the spread of information and knowledge. There was a large variety of genres explored using this printing press.
