The Art of Printing


In 1495 the Danish “Rimkrønike” was printed in Copenhagen as the first Danish book.
Before that time the books were handwritten and very expensive.
They had though tried to print books by carving each page of the book in wood, and then print with these wooden sheets.
Even if it was an improvement, it did not mean much though.

Not until a German, Johan Gutenberg, thought of making loose characters (small metal pieces, where at the ends are raised letters. The letter stands reversed, as the print otherwise would be inverted) and put them together to form words, lines and whole pages, they could print many and cheap books.

The printed book became more and more widespread, so that even the ordinary man could now buy them, and it helped the people to become more informed.
