Hi!
I would like to access information about printing before Gutenberg's time, emphasise on Chinese wood printers, Korean an Japanese printing, the oldest found printed books.

In any language. (however preferably in English, Finnish, Hungarian or Korean...)

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
