Pierre Attaingnant , Attaingnant also spelled Attaignant , (born c. 1494, Douai?, France—died 1551/52, Paris), prominent French music printer and publisher in the Renaissance who was one of the earliest to use single-impression printing. (Earlier printers printed the staff and the notes in separate impressions.)

Before 1527 Attaingnant began using a newly invented movable music type, in which a fragment of a musical staff was combined with a note on each piece of type. He used the new type in a book of chansons , Chansons Nouvelles (1528). Because Attaingnant’s single-impression method halved the time and labour formerly needed to print music, it was quickly adopted throughout Europe . Attaingnant was the first to use the printing press to achieve mass production in music publishing . In 1537 he became music printer and bookseller to the French king Francis I . Attaingnant’s printings represent more than 150 outstanding composers of his day and include chansons, dance collections, masses , motets , psalms , and Passions. His 111 surviving publications are rich in information about early 16th-century music.
