Did you know that before 1440, all books in Europe were copied and produced by hand, one at a time? Copyists and scribes wrote the text and illuminators drew and painted the pictures. In 1440, Johannes Gutenberg invented a printing press. A printing press is like a giant ‘stamp’ and can easily create multiple copies of the same page. During the Renaissance, a printing press could produce about 3,600 pages each day compared to only 2-3 pages by hand.

We hope that you have a great day of learning. Remember to think kind words, use kind words, and do kind things. We Love you.
