Last week an exhibition of incunables opened at the Russian State Library in Moscow. There are many notable objects shown there, but arguably the jewel of the show is one of the few remaining Gutenberg Bibles printed on vellum.
The Invention of Printing – Die Erfindung der Buchdruckerkunst (Heinrich Meisner; Johannes Luther, 1900)
This work explores the first decades of printing in the 15th century and is dedicated to the 500th birthday of Johannes Gutenberg. While the book is in German language, on 116 pages you will find 115 illustrations, including two spreads.
