PRINTER'S ERROR Irreverent Stories from Book History

by | Read by J.P. Romney

History • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

This collection of strange anecdotes from the history of printing could have just been black-and-white and possibly not read all over. But the Romneys put far too much color in this volume for that to happen. And coauthor J.P. Romney successfully transfers the book's wickedly sarcastic tone to his narration. He slyly uses the writings of important historical characters to bring them to life, including a financially wounded Charles Dickens, the likely insane English illustrator William Moore, and the maligned feminist author Mary Wollstonecraft. He keeps listeners laughing so much that they don't realize how much they're learning. Romney makes the point that printing is much more than Gutenberg--whose name doesn't even appear in the famous Bible he printed. He makes education fun, always a difficult task.
