Reconstructing Gutenberg’s Press: The IES' Term-Long Celebration for 'Gutenberg Year 2018'

Johannes Gutenberg printed the first book, the Gutenberg Bible, around 1455. Over 500 years later, his invention still shapes how we communicate. But what did his press look like? And how did it work? This term-long portfolio of events participates in an international initiative to commemorate the 550th anniversary of Gutenberg’s death and celebrates the relaunch of the IES Annual Lecture in the History of the Book.

Thursday, 1 February 2018
6pm: lecture; 7pm: keepsake printing
Senate House, London
