Breaking Into Print: Before & After the Invention of the Printing Press
Stephen Krensky (au); Bonnie Christensen (il). Up until the early 1400s, books were hand-lettered with knife-sharpened quills by industrious monks & were so rare & valuable that they were chained to the shelves of monastery libraries. But once the printing press was invented, the world of reading & access to information opened up to everyone, enabling explorers, scientists, & writers to easily share knowledge for the first time. This beautifully illustrated book for young adults, with a clear text, rich in historical details, demonstrates the dramatic impact this invaluable invention had on society. Exquisite wood engravings recall a way of life before the printing press changed the world. “It’s a gorgeous format that does complete justice to the subject.” An American Bookseller “Pick of the Lists”.
