Ink on His Fingers

Ink on His Fingers (Louise a. Vernon Historical Fiction Series, 12)Ink on His Fingers by Louise A. Vernon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A short and sensational tale about Johann Gutenburg's struggle to successfully market the printing press and print an aesthetically pleasing Bible. I'm not a fan of Vernon's style. A bit clipped, the time jumps can be jarring, and too much psychological focus on side characters rubbing shoulders with the historical character. Still, it brings to life the difficulty of bringing a new invention like this into the public eye.
