Travelling Images: Venetian Illustrated Books from The University of Edinburgh Collections
About the Exhibition
Opening: 13th April 2018 | Where: Binks Trust Exhibition Wall, Main Library 6th Floor | Closing: 15th June 2018
During the Renaissance, Venice was one most important European centres for book production and trade. Writers, scholars and artists worked there in collaboration with specialised artisans to produce perfected editions, which were often lavishly illustrated. In this small display we present three of our most interesting Venetian illustrated books and trace the paths they took in their travels from Venice, to our own institution.
