We live in the Information Age and the level of technology that we’ve come to rely on opens up loads of possibilities. But what of the things we now take for granted? For instance, what do we know about printing? UPrinting.com compiled a fascinating infographic which tells us that the practice dates back to well over 2.700 years before the first pyramids of Egypt were built. The first printed book that we know of was the “Diamond Sutra” (868 CE, China), and everyone feels sure that the inception of book printing goes a lot deeper into the obscure pits of history for experts to ascertain. What is more, butterfly binding, or the established method of sealing printed pages together at one of their margins, was initially enacted in 1000 AD. Food for thought: the time when Confucius walked the earth is closer by far to the time when internet was invented, than to perceived records of the first ever printings. In fact, the first woodblock printing was done in East Asia (China or Korea) sometime around 100 A.D. And block printing made it to Europe much, much later, namely in the 13th century, because paper wasn’t available in the continent prior to that time… Here, we have Johannes Gutenberg to thank to for taking that big plunge. Ever since then, the bright minds of our Western Civilization have been working to lift the art of printing to immeasurable heights.
