  • Welcome to Gutenberg's Print Shop Woooo
  • Gutenberg was already familiar with the art of bookmaking, so he first started perfecting a small metal type. Each type was a single letter, character, etc.  This technique  had been used in the past, but Gutenberg's use of metal alloys made it much more practical and much eaiser than that.
  • In 1450, two years after he moved back to Mainz, he was operating his own print shop. He borrowed 800 dollars from a financier named Johann Fust to buy the tools he needed to operate his shop. By 1452, he was extremely in debt, and a deal where Fust became a buisness partner had to be arranged. By 1455, Gutenberg, still in debt, was sued by Fust.
  • Fust eventually won the suit and he took over most of Gutenberg's business, including the Gutenberg Bible and the book of Psalms. Fust's son in law, Peter Schoeffer, also joined Fust in the business.
