In this volume, leading specialists examine aspects of the relationship between the business of print and the practice of art and design across five centuries. The role played by the book trade in the diffusion of artistic and architectural theory, fashion and practice is explored, while other essays trace the impact on the appearance of books themselves of aesthetic trends and of advances in the techniques of binding, colour printing and illustration.
