Event description

Description

During the European Renaissance, the presentation of the printed book was often a matter of experimentation, due to rapid developments in typographical and related technologies. The inclusion of illustrations affected the organisation and layout of a given book, with consequences for the text and its reading. This paper will examine the relation between text and image in some of the illustrated treasures of the Baillieu library, among them the French version of the famous Hypnerotomachia Poliphili (1546) and other texts published during the 17th or 18th century.
