Letterpress printing is relief printing of text and images using a press and movable type. A reversed, raised surface is inked and then pressed into a sheet of paper to obtain a positive right-reading image. It was the normal form of printing text from its invention by Johannes Gutenberg in the mid-15th century until the 19th century. Letterpress remained in wide use for books and other uses until the second half of the 20th century.
