Regarding this, who invented the steam powered printing press?
On 29 November 1814, 360 years after Gutenberg invented the hand press, a new steam-powered double-cylinder printing press from Friedrich Koenig and Andreas Bauer was used for the first time to print The Times in London.
One may also ask, how did the original printing press work? The printing plate is covered with ink (either by hand, with a brush or by an automated roller) before the paper is pressed tightly against it and then released. The process can be repeated any number of times. When you press a key, these metal type letters flip up and press a piece of inked fabric against the paper.
