Printing Brief History

China, Korea and Japan already known the printing technique since 8 century. The method they used is using a wood block who impress image to substrate using water base paint. At 1440 in Mainz-Germany, Johannes Gutenberg find new method, using a single font engraved at a wood block, and then develop to metal. That single font can arrange to be word or sentence, after use for print they can rearrange to a single piece again for other order.
