In the 15th century, Johannes Gutenberg invented printing from movable, reproducible type, a development that transformed the face of printing and enabled the creation of his famed Bible, which is one of the earliest mass-produced books in human history.
Only 49 copies of the Gutenberg Bible survive today, one of which is housed in The Huntington's Library collections.
This handy lined journal celebrates this print marvel with a cover richly decorated with excerpts from the Gutenberg bible, reimagined by German artist Gisela Maschmann.
