"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."--BOOK JACKET

"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
