Description

The making of a book

Since the museum's creation in 1986, the collection has expanded thanks to the addition of private collections.

The first book ever printed in Spain (a devotional book exalting the Virgin Mary) was made in Valencia in 1474. This museum was founded as a tribute to this event and is located in the El Puig de Santa María Royal Monastery. It has many extremely valuable facsimile books, as well as wooden presses, letter moulds, printers' marks, hand-carved relief plates and printing implements from Gutenberg's era.
