Gutenberg Yearbook

The Gutenberg Yearbook is the central scientific journal of international Gutenberg research. It was founded in 1926 by Aloys Ruppel in the name of the Gutenberg Society and has since been published by it.

Each of the more than 400 pages of this very well-endowed work contains around 30 specialist contributions in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish. The scientifically responsible publisher of the yearbook is the director of the Institute for Book Science of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Prof. Dr. Stephan Füssel.

In addition to articles on the life and work of Gutenberg and results of incunabulary research, the topic of the yearbook covers a wide range: history of printing from the beginning to the present, paper history, library history, book trade and publishing history, history of writing, modern typesetting and Printing process, developments in typography and in the new media, book illustration, book cover, newspaper and press, literature reports on the printing press and the Einbandkunde. Despite all the scientific work, care is taken that the interested layman can read the book with joy and profit.
