Through an examination of material and institutional circumstances, through the study of work shop practices and of technical and aesthetic experimentation, this book seeks to give an account of the ways in which Renaissance prints were realized, distributed, acquired, and handled by their public.

Never before has the Renaissance fine print received the type of multifaceted scrutiny elaborated in this superb synthesis. While focusing on the great prints and printmakers of Italy and Germany, the authors have articulated a consideration that rigorously evokes the various graphic techniques, their stylistic qualities and visual ramifications, and the aesthetic and theoretical context in which the prints were produced. Not only is the proximate setting of the prints' production convincingly educed, but the societal milieu of their dissemination, acquisition, and appreciation are also cogently reconstructed. All this is set within an overview that encompasses the rise, efflorescence, and decline of this new artistic medium. This is a work so rich in information, observation, and insight that no collection seriously concerned with the history of the graphic arts of Renaissance culture may dispense with it.
