Gutenberg and the impact of printing by Stephan Füssel( Book )

24 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and German and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From typefounding through typesetting to the printing process itself, this narrative offers a fresh look at the unprecedented success story of the spread of the "black art" right across Europe in a mere 40 years. Stephan Fussel here analyses the earliest printings, placing them in the context of the history of communication and the intellectual climate of a Europe-wide educated elite by about 1500. He foregrounds the tremendous rise in European culture and the history of education experienced as a direct result of this media revolution." "Stephan Fussel traces the modern resonances of Gutenberg's invention, which persisted in virtually unchanged from for a further 350 years. It underwent decisive technological change through industrialisation and mechanisation in the nineteenth century, and again through digitalisation at the close of the twentieth century. However, as Fussel shows, the mass diffusion of information and the related communication revolution which began with Gutenberg continue unabated."--Jacket

Manuale tipografico by Giambattista Bodoni( Book )

32 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Official printer for the Duke of Parma, Giambattista Bodoni (1740-1813) declared that well-designed type derived its beauty from four principles: uniformity of design, sharpness and neatness, good taste, and charm. In his Manuale tipografico, published posthumously in 1818, he distilled these principles into a comprehensive catalog of type and set the standard for printing the alphabet thereafter. This reprint of Bodoni's masterwork features 142 sets of Roman and Italic typefaces, a wide selection of borders, ornaments, symbols, and flowers, as well as Greek, Hebrew, Russian, Arabic, Phoenician, Armenian, Coptic, and Tibetan alphabets. It includes an essay by Stephan Füssel and a translation of the dedication and prefaces to Bodoni's original work

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Martin Luther's Bible, published in 1534, was the first complete German Bible and a pivotal event in the history of Christianity. Luther's revolutionary translation, modern in vernacular and interpretation, made the Bible accessible to laypeople, fueled anger and revulsion toward Rome and the Papacy, and begat a new religion: Protestantism. The most desirable copies came with shockingly graphic and politically-charged illustrations, such as those depicting the Whore of Babylon riding a seven-headed beast while wearing the Papal crown, or the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse led by a Turkish soldier"--Publisher website
