The nearly 240-year long history of printing in Pécs begun with György Klimo, bishop of Pécs.

He built churches, extended the seminary, and intended to restart the university. To this he created the conditions by establishing a paper-mill and a press. His typographer, János József Engel got the permission to build a printing factory in 1773 from Maria Theresa. From the end of the 18th century till the nationalization of presses (1949) worked about thirty factories in the city. The Elisabeth University of Pozsony (Bratislava) was compelled to flee, and moved in 1923 to Pécs. The printing activity in Pécs was boosted again.

By the 19th-20th century presses had increased substantially in efficiency; they printed varied range of printings, from illuminated books and newspapers to mass products. The exhibition shows the history of classic typography in Pécs.
