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 and craftsmen to produce perfected editions, which were often lavishly illustrated. In this small display we present three of the most interesting Venetian illustrated books preserved in our collections and trace the paths they took in their travels from Venice to our own institution.

Curated by Linda Borean (Universita degli Studi di Udine) and Laura Moretti (University of St Andrews), with Elizabeth Quarmby Lawrence (University of Edinburgh Centre for Research Collections).
Funded by The Royal Society of Edinburgh. Supported by the School of Art History, University of St Andrews and Thinking 3D.
