History and Importance of Printing

By: shijina

Printing was once unknown to people, and during those days only few people were able to read and write. All the book of knowledge was confined to church officials and to the universities teacher. When printing was invented, it was noted that there was a general desire in people for learning throughout Europe and this amazing invention made the books cheaper and improved the ability in people to read more books. Hence in order to grasp more knowledge, people started to learn to read and in order to communicate with others who were not within the talking distance, they started to learn writing. Thus, printing became important as it gave knowledge to be spread among many instead of keeping it restricted to the few.

And printing as well became important in children's life as printed books and schooling is compulsory for all the children in the country.

Development of printing has made it probable for us to use of capability to read, as books on hundreds of various subjects, magazines and newspapers are published at prices, which are with in most of our reach. Further the development of public libraries, where books might be drawn out free of charge, is as well the consequent of the invention of printing that has made possible the fast manufacture of many copies of single books. Hence the skill has been placed within the reach of all who care to gain control of it.

In history, before printing and other modern inventions were came up, people also had less knowledge about the places other than their own community, as the means of communication was lacking. This in turn resulted in ignorance and a lack of understanding among people. The situation is pretty different today, as we have access to printed books, magazines and newspaper. Through this today, people in one part of the world can easily make themselves understood by others. Thus they are brought closer together and are able to make use of all the things that are devised, invented and thought of in all parts of the world. The invention of printing has therefore aided in the movement to spread knowledge among the many.
