Description: The Crafts Report: Profile in Success
Once all books were made by hand. Scribes copied original manuscripts and the copies were bound in book form to preserve them for future scholars (few others could read). The advent of the printing press in the mid-15th century caused a print revolution, comparable in many respects to the computer revolution of the past 40 years.
