Gutemberg and Movable Type

The Gutemberg Bible is the first book printed with movable type. It is offered online by the Ransom Center through their Digital Gutemberg Project.

The teaser in me says that they missed the opportunity to publish it with Movable Type. The malcontents will say that in today's world of Google washing, it is a true miracle that Gutemberg still manages to appear on the first page of a search on movable type (even if, ironically, it ends on an orphan page from some obscure software company).
