Most people will have heard of the Guttenberg Bible, the first printed book, using moveable print, in Western society. Very little is known about Guttenberg after the invention of the printing press and the production of the Bible, but it is thought he was cheated out of his invention by his financiers and he disappeared into the mists of medieval Europe. This book brings a fictional account of what may have happened using much research from universities and libraries in Europe and America. A clever tale explaining the invention, financing and downfall of Guttenberg. There is much about the political skulduggery by the Church and local powerful landlords, how life was financed in the medieval times and what life was like. A very interesting read and one that would make great summer reading. There are three copies of this available as prizes and the competition will run until Sunday 26 July 2015. The competition can be entered here: Guttenberg's Apprentice A review should be available shortly.
