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 Fuessel here analyses the first early printings, placing them in context the history of communication and the intellectual climate of a Europe-wide educated elite by about 1500. He foregrounds the tremendous rise European culture and the history of education experienced as a direct result of this media revolution. In separate chapters Fuessel depicts the fast spreading of the art of printing to Italy, France and England.
