"[A] handsomely produced collection of papers. . . . The fascinations story that emerges in this volume is a much sharpened and enriched version of the standard histories that focused primarily on establishing origins. . . . A healthy and welcome addition to the study of print culture."—Evelyn Lincoln, Zeitschrift fur Kunstgeschichte

By Ivor E. Zetler on October 12, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a record of proceedings of a symposium held in the National Gallery of Art in 2005. As such it would be primarily aimed at experts in this field of study. For such a person the book should have a 5 star rating. As a non expert I found much of the text technical and a bit of a struggle to digest. The main compensation for me was the liberal quantity of interesting and attractive illustrations of various woodcuts, illuminated manuscripts, paintings etc.

This print quality of this book is very high as are the photographic illustrations. This is primarily a specialist publication.
