Gutenberg's printing machine, born in 1398 in the German city of Mainz, was said to have used metal blocks for printing wood. It was easy to print on any paper with this machine.

Gutenberg's printing machine was the first to print a poem in German. A Latin grammar book was also printed, although Gutenberg Press received it after the Bible was printed.

It was cheaper than a handwritten Bible at the time. Today more than 21 Gutenberg Bibles are available. Today it is worth more than 30 30 million. He died on this day, February 3, 1468.
