Herr Pfister was a printer in the city of Bamberg Bavaria. He is known to have published nine works. And it has been contentiously argued that he printed the "36 line Bible." He was responsible for two innovations. The first was printing in his native German language and the second was the use of woodblock prints to add illustrations to the text. These were both first with the use of movable type. He was heavily influenced by Gutenberg's typefaces but there are a range of notable and also subtle differences between the two men's output. He was known to be active in the industry from about 1460 to his death in 1466. This font was specifically based on his 'Biblia Paperum.'
