A delightful little children's book about Johann Guttenberg and the invention of the printing press. The book is written, designed and illustrated by the author Bruce Koscielniak, and he is careful to point out the previous efforts made by other cultures to mass produce the written word. China, Korea and early European monastic efforts are highlighted with simple explanatory language and diagrams. An enjoyable quick read, even for adults who delight in the history of the book.

I love books about books, and the history of books and printing, so when I saw this at the local Half Price Books clearance shelf for a buck I had to grab it. It is a children's book but still full of wonderful details on the history of the printing press and how books came to be made. The watercolor pictures are also pretty good.
