What were the parts of the printing press?
I am writing a paper on the printing press and it requires me to label the parts of the printing press and describe what they do. A labeled picture would be very helpful.
This is a site that will help you decide which type of printing press you want to talk about, from very early to early modern. http://www.facstaff.bucknell.edu/tlusty/printing/index.html Here is another good history: http://www.ideafinder.com/history/inventions/printpress.htm
If you are specifically interested in the Gutenberg Printing Press, here is a good article with many good links: http://inventors.about.com/od/gstartinventors/a/Gutenberg.htm
I’m sorry that I could not find you a nice picture with labeled parts, but I think these articles describe the parts well enough so that you can match the names of the parts to the pictures.
Good luck, sounds like an interesting project.
