How did print technology enhance the production of books?
Answer:

  • Printing presses were set up in most countries of Europe after its invention by Gutenberg.
  • Printers from Germany travelled to other countries, seeking work and helping start new presses. As the number of printing presses grew, book production boomed.
  • The second half of the 15th century saw 20 million copies of printed books flooding the markets in Europe.
