This volume presents new research by eminent and emerging scholars in honor of Lilian Armstrong, whose pioneering art historical approach to the study of early printed books focused upon the unique nature of each copy of an edition to reveal a vast, previously unstudied corpus of beautiful and important paintings within them.
Helena Szépe and Ilaria Andreoli have published extensively on manuscript illumination and early printed book illustration.
This book presents new research by eminent and emerging scholars in honor of Lilian Armstrong, whose extraordinary research has elucidated a vast corpus of imagery previously hidden inside manuscripts and books produced in late medieval and Renaissance Venice and the Veneto. Armstrong was one of the pioneers focusing upon the unique nature of each copy of early printed editions, an approach which has transformed the field of book history. Her studies of antiquarian imagery in books and manuscripts revealed the inventiveness and originality of these works, and that many important classical motifs initially emerged in such marginal spaces before they were canonized in sculpture and oil painting. The contributions by art historians, manuscript scholars, and book historians collected here on the book arts across Europe are testimonies to the fact that Lilian Armstrong's research has been highly influential across disciplines and geographical areas of study.
