Baroque Book Design
A tale of friendship and collaboration
How did the book evolve in the baroque period? Why did a publisher such as Balthasar Moretus work with leading artists? And what is the vision of contemporary innovators in the book trade? The Plantin-Moretus Museum’s exhibition BAROQUE BOOK DESIGN, A tale of friendship and collaboration reveals publishers’ love for their trade, and how they have motivated artists, printers and designers in the past and present to create top-quality products.
