In this surprise video episode, writer and producer Daniel Seehausen investigates the strange history of the printing press. Featuring an interview with Dr. David Davis, assistant professor of history at Houston Baptist University, we learn about how books were treated in the past, and how Gutenberg’s story did not turn out as successfully as one might have imagined.
Expect part two about the history of illegal printing in the Soviet Union next week, alongside the release of the audio version.
