Johannes Gutenberg. Man of the millennium.

Johannes Gutenberg, who was born in Mainz in around 1400, was celebrated as the 'man of the millennium' and deservedly so: he invented the printing press with moveable type, which made the mass production of books possible and gave rise to a media revolution in Europe. Today, two original copies of the Gutenberg Bible from 1452/54 are on display at the Gutenberg Museum in Mainz. Visitors can look round a reconstruction of Gutenberg's workshop and even try their hand at using the printing press.
