One thought on “Stephen Fry and the Gutenberg press

  1. Eirik Newth

    The most interesting fact I learned from this show was that nobody knows the details of Gutenberg’s invention. They have to make an educated guess as to what kind of printing press design was actually used. The results they get in the end are a joy to behold for any book lover, though. Highly recommended.
