In this engaging biography, Robert Beckham goes beyond the few facts children are usually told about the inventor of the printing press. Instead, Beckham tells us Gutenberg's story. Why did Johannes make thousands of small mirrors? When did he learn how to make coins at the mint? Why did his girlfriend take him to court?

Beckham's chronological narrative will draw in parents and children alike, while Jed Mickle's ingenious and energetic illustrations will delight the eye and the imagination.
