To understand how the Printing Press Dubai works, it is also necessary to understand has printing itself has evolved over
the years. From the time of its creation to the present day influence this
great innovation has had on the world you know.
Johannes Gensfleisch zur Laden zum Gutenberg was
born sometime around the 1400s was a German publisher and goldsmith credited
with the invention of the printing press who died on the 3rd of
February in 1468.
With the introduction of his mechanical
movable-type printing press to Europe, his work started what became known as
the Printing Revolution in Europe and is regarded as a milestone of the second
millennium age which ushered in the modern period of human history.
This truly monumental invention was the combination
of several innovations and elements into a practical system that allowed for
the mass production of printed books providing a more economical and viable
option for both printers and readers alike.
Gutenberg's method for making his type of printing
press is traditionally considered to have included a type of metal alloy and a
hand mold for casting. The metal alloy was a mixture of lead, tin, and antimony
that melted at a low temperature for a faster and more economical printing
With the first book he was ever said to have
printed being “The Gutenberg Bible,” which was naturally named after the
celebrated inventor, Gutenberg’s Printing Press has since evolved over the
years and has had an impact on the history and future of the world in ways that
even the famous inventor could not have possibly ever imagined.
Here are a few ways the Printing Press has
changed the world forever.
affected how news was disseminated.
Back in the old-times people often got news of
what was happening from around the world by messenger, town criers, or simply
from travelers who happened their way.
Local brothels, taverns, and marketplaces were a
hotbed for anyone interested in learning what was happening in other villages,
towns, and even countries.
As you can imagine this news was always accurate
as accounts given by different people often had slight variations depending on
who told the story.
With the advent of Gutenberg's printing press,
large scale printing of notices, pamphlets and the eventual birth of the
newspaper made the dissemination of information, ideas, and data more
accessible to a larger populace.
And now till this very day Printing Press in
Dubai and around the world still serve the world in that respect with the
printing of similar materials like books, pamphlets, and novels as well as
travel guides, photo catalogs, magazines and other like media.
in Technology and Science
Naturally, as books became more available to the
public it also led to advancements in most areas of academia and lead to a
direct boost to the advancements made within the scientific community around
the known world.
As a result, the discoveries made by scientists
and explorers of the time were more easily shared throughout the known world,
books and innovations made in one country could now be more easily shared with
others thousands of miles away.
More accurate and uniform data could be given in
books, ideas could be more easily illustrated and conveyed from one inventor’s
mind to another.
Interesting facts and fanciful stories were more
easily told the way they were intended to be and
with this newfound ability to publish and share news, scientific findings and
data with a wider audience, the world, and scientific community took great leap
forward in during the 16th and 17th centuries.
The sharing of ideas and innovations would
lead to even greater ideas and innovations and the printing press became one of
the most influential devices of its era to the present day.
It led to
an increase in the number of books available to the public
As stated earlier, the printing of books and the
reprinting of classical texts, stories and so forth now become possible and
much easier than they used to be.
Back in the day, most people often transcribed
texts and books by hand even often rewriting parts of old texts to suit their
tastes as they did.
As you could imagine transcribing books by hand
took a lot of time and effort and it could sometimes take a Scribe years to
transcribe and illustrate a single book.
But, with the advent of the printing press books
both old and new could be reprinted at a faster rate with more volume further
helping to get such texts into the hands of the multitudes rather than a select
But now, the works of older classical poets,
philosophers, and playwrights were quickly finding their way back into the
hearts and minds of the larger populace and led to the emergence of the world's
first bestselling Author, Martin Luther.
Since then Printing Press Dubai and from
around the world have been helping to print the work of both old and new
Authors, playwrights, poets, and even comic book creators and help get their
work to the public.
The distributed works of many philosophers
around during the enlightenment era sparked the flames of revolution that would
burn through the world for countless centuries to come.
The works of philosophers like John Locke and
Jean Jacques Rousseau became commonplace amongst an increasingly literate
Enlightening the general public led them to
question the policies of the ruling bodies and question the authorities of
their religious leaders, the church, and the rise of public opinion power to
topple the ruling class.
People were becoming increasingly more aware
of what good governance meant and as such began to understand that they had a
lot more power over what the ruling class did than they previously knew.
Sometimes, when new technology is invented, old
jobs cease to exist and new ones are created.
With the advent of the printing press, most
scribes soon found themselves out of work. However, the Printing press also
ended up creating new jobs no one had ever had before.
Soon skilled laborers were hired in the areas of
proofreading, book design, and layout which soon gave rise to publishing houses
that became the engine and framework of a quickly growing and lucrative
And even though it didn’t start till the 18th
century some say that the printing press was the beginning of the industrial
Effect on Literacy
With all the advancements made by the invention
of the Printing Press, perhaps the most important advancement made by the printing
press is its effect on the literacy rate around the world.
As we talked about earlier the printing press
allowed for the democratizing of knowledge as more and more individuals were
provided access to more information.
it necessary for more people to learn to read. A skill that most people ever
acquired in those times due to the lack of material which the Printing press
had finally made more accessible to the general public.
And as more and more books made it into
circulation through there was a
significant advancement in mass literacy as demonstrated through the
exponential rise in adult literacy throughout the known world of the times and
especially in Europe.
schooling was no longer just for the rich alone as smaller more locally based
schools started teaching children and adults how to read.
to read was considered a skill of some prestige and even granted opportunities
for some to finally work in more prestigious establish or pursue more lucrative
printing press would also have a drastic and lasting effect on the educational
practices of the time, evolving and transforming the relationship between
educator and student, master and apprentice.
students didn't always have to go to their instructors if they wanted to learn
new things. The wisdom of older and now silent masters in books could also act
as their teachers.
many books were produced in Latin, this also helped to promote the language
that would become the basis for most of the major languages in the known world.
It brought the world stories
as we know it today probably wouldn’t be what it is without the invention of
the Printing Press. Or perhaps to be more precise, it would have gotten there a
effect, the Printing press had on literacy and education around Europe and then
later the rest of the world, more and more people began to read.
the news, educational manuscripts, and scientific journals, but books about
far-off places, fairytales, and adventures that would spark the imagination of
millions to come.
It can be
said that the printing press gave birth to the Novel and the novelist. As
detailed in an earlier section in this post, Martin Luther was acclaimed to be
the very first Novelist in known history.
storytellers now having a means of telling the often wonderful ideas they had
locked in their heads to a wider audience the world would soon begin to
understand the true power of the imagination and a new type of industry would
be born inspiring millions from around the world till this day.
Printing Press Dubai has continued to offer an outlet for these great bastions of the
ancient art of storytelling and so doing ensuring that the world continues to
enjoy the work of countless Authors and adventures to entertain both the young
and the old.
