As printing from movable type was perfected in the fifteenth century, the mysteries of its practice were guarded by a privileged few. The rapid spread of the new art depended on the development of a reliable mechanism for transferring knowledge, and printers naturally adapted the established practices of the medieval craft guilds. In this way, the art of printing was preserved and sustained, often carefully veiled from outsiders, and always the product of years of close study and practice.
