Welcome back!

With all that's been said about the current "information revolution," it's easy to forget that an even greater revolution of this kind was unleashed nearly 600 years ago. In the first half of the 15th century, the Gutenberg press finally made it possible to disseminate printed material to the masses, giving rise to newspapers, scholarly journals, a bible in every European home, and a public library in every city center. So it's in honor of what's been hailed as "the most important invention of the second millennium" that we'll be investigating the work that takes place before they "Start the presses!"
