Camplin and Renauro reveal centuries of symbiosis between the visual and literary arts. They examine the development of printed books and the simultaneous emergence of the modern figure of the artist. In doing so they weave together an engaging cultural history that probes the ways in which books and paintings represent a key to understanding ourselves and the past. -- adapted from jacket

Who would have thought that a book focusing on a seemingly narrow theme could be so captivating. Especially loved the works pictured on Pages 62 and 202. Must admit, however, that I skipped much of the book's text because it looked too detailed and deep for me.
