전세계 외국 교과서에는 현존하는 세계 최고의 활판 인쇄물인 직지가 소개되어 있지 않습니다. 대부분의 책에서는 팔만 대장경이나 삼국유사, 삼국사기에 대해서 소개하고 있습니다.
, 더나아가서 일부 교과서들은 한국의 인쇄술에 대해서 왜곡된 내용을 담고 있는 곳도 있습니다.
이는 그동안 우리가 직지의 가치에 대해서 적극적으로 홍보하지 않았기 때문입니다.
한국인의 손끝에서 직접 전해지는 정확한 직지 홍보자료를 전세계 교과서 출판기관에 공급해야할 때입니다. 아래 전세계 교과서

Dear Cambridge University Press
First of all, I'd like to express my respect for publishing such an excellent and valuable textbook.
VANK is a cyber diplomatic mission whose goal is to raise the national image of Korea throughout the world.
We are carrying out a variety of activities to introduce valuable information about Korea to foreigners
around the world who don't know about Korea, and show a national image of a "Friendly Korea,
Friends of the World" in the hearts of the people around the world
by promoting international exchange with foreigners and Koreans.
I am a member of VANK, cyber diplomatic envoy mission, and have a great interest
in the metalloid type considered one of the greatest inventions in human history
for its capability of mass delivery of information.
I believe that the metalloid type made Reformation of the Christianity and Renaissance success in world history and,
in the 21st century, even global knowledge network with Internet system as well.
With such interest in the metalloid type, while I researched and examined the column of global printing
described in world major textbooks, websites and encyclopedia,
I happened to find inaccurate historical record of the metalloid type from the textbook published by your company.
Therefore I take this chance to let you know of it and to ask to correct.
On your explanation of world history about type, you introduce the metalloid type of Gutenberg,
German and wooden types of China & Japan but the “Jikji” of Korea that has been confirmed
as the first metalloid type in the world.
“Jikji” a buddhist doctrinal book called as “Jikjisimcheyojeol” or “Jikji” in short form is the oldest book
among existing books made by metalloid type. It had been made in 1377,
78 years earlier than “the Bible in 48 lines” made by Gutenberg of German which has been known
as the first book made by metalloid type in about 1455, and is under custody of the National Library of France.
For your reference, I’d like to tell you that UNESCO confirmed “Jikji” as the world oldest metalloid type
in September , 2001 and officially recognized and certified “Jikji” as the Memory of the World.
If you visit below website, you may find the website of UNESCO related to ‘Jikji’ and systematic evidence showing
that ‘Jikji’ was the first metalloid type in the world
※ → Website of UNESCO related to “Jikji”
※ → Website of Cheongju Early Printing Museum related to “Jikji”
Your publishing company takes a critical roll as a window to deliver the accurate historical fact and
truth to the students of the primary and middle schools in the world who have interest in world history.
It’ll be our appreciation if you introduce the true story of the “Jikji”
to deliver the accurate historical truth to the people in the world.
We wish to revive the spirit of creation that contributed to all people in the world
by development of the world first metalloid type, the greatest invention of the 14th century in human history,
by our voluntary strive in these days. And we wish to make Korea, which has grown as one of the great nations
of information and communication in the 21st century, to be recorded one more time as the nation
which contributes for all people of the world in world history,
and to tell the people of the world of the national image of Korea.
We need your support and cooperation to achieve our dream.
