Johannes Gutenberg c.1398-1468
We can thank Gutenberg (and Caxton) for the books we read today. Gutenberg invented the mechanical printing press and the fruit of his work is evident all around us.

Time-Life magazine attributed Gutenberg's invention as the most important of the second millennium. The project took off like the Internet.
