A printing press is a machine that applies pressure to an inked surface, which then transfers the ink onto another material (such as paper or cloth). The invitation was typically used for texts, and the spread of the printing press is widely they as the first mass production of books in history. The printing press revolutionized the way people are able to describe the world they live in, communicate with others, and preserve moments of historical or personal importance.The process of bookmaking in assembly line-style led to the most influential event in the second millennium AD. A single Renaissance printing press could produce 3,600 pages per workday, compared to only the forty by typographic hand-printing, and just a few by hand-copying. Books of bestselling authors like Luther or Erasmus were sold by the hundreds of thousands in their lifetime.
