Since 1926 the International Gutenberg Society published the periodical Publication the Gutenberg Yearbook. It has become the leading scientific yearbook worldwide in the fields of Gutenberg research and research into the history of the art of printing and of the book in general.
In 2018, the City of Mainz will celebrate a very special anniversary: For then the anniversary of the death of the city's most famous son, Johannes Gutenberg, will be celebrated for the 550th time. In the "Gutenberg Year 2018", the focus is on the past, but also on the present and the future with social media, 3D printing and Co. Of course, the Gutenberg Society must not be missing and we will again be offering many exciting events this year. A highlight will be, for example, the presentation of the Gutenberg Prize to our general meeting on Saturday, June 23, 2018. Since it has been awarded since 1968, we can then celebrate another anniversary with the 50th anniversary of the Gutenberg Prize.
In the press area you will find current press reactions to the "Gutenberg Year 2018".
