Gutenberg's printing press was the great revolution in the modern history. Johannes Gutenberg was a German goldsmith, printer and publisher who introduced modern book printing. His invention of mechanical movable type printing started the Printing Revolution. It played key role in the development of the Renaissance, Reformation and Scientific Revolution and laid the material basis for the modern knowledge-based economy and the spread of learning to the masses. The seminar encapsulates the journey of printing from the invention of movable type printing to electronic publishing and e-media.
