36. Fontaine, Jean-Paul. 'Printing press'.12/2/2009 .
The printing press is a mechanical printing device for making copies of identical text on multiple sheets of paper. It was invented in Germany by the goldsmith and printer Johannes Gutenberg in the 1440s. Printing methods based on Gutenberg's printing press spread rapidly throughout first Europe and then the rest of the world, replacing most block printing and making it the sole genitor of modern movable type printing.
Movable type printing, which allowed individual characters to be arranged to form words, is a separate invention from the printing press. Movable type printing was also invented in Germany by Gutenberg in the 1440s and in China by Bi Sheng between 1041 to 1048.
