Did You Know…Fascinating Printing Facts for #IPD15: ow.ly/TnT9G 

Did you know… Johannes Gutenberg died a poor man? He was sued by his wealthy business partners in 1455 and lost the lawsuit, which resulted in the iconic printer being forced to give up his printing business and, ultimately, into financial ruin, before his death in 1468.
