Gutenberg vs. My Sanity

So I read somewhere that no one actually knows what Gutenberg looks like. He was largely underappreciated until he was about to die, so no one ever drew his portrait. Yet, every rendering of him on the internet shows him with this two-pronged beard, because one fellow, four or five hundred years ago drew him this way in a history book. I wish I had that kind of power.

LOL! This is great!! Also makes me wanna start searching for an obscure historical figure to draw in hopes that one day the masses will have to take my word (well image) for it.

I know, right. Too bad some one invented the camera.
