Monument of Johannes Gutenberg

From 1439 to 1444, Johannes Gutenberg, inventor of letterpress printing, lived in Strasbourg. His statue can be found on Place Gutenberg, near to the cathedral.

In 1840, the artist David d'Anger has created this statue. Gutenberg is holding a page of the Scriptures on which one can read the line "and there was light" in French.
