Reading is apparently the greatest proof of refinement when viewed within the context of the social climb of the visual artist. It is only as reader that the artist can participate in the exclusive culture of clerics, humanists, rulers and courtiers. How did it come about that such a figure was integrated into the general history-of-knowledge context of research on the early modern period - in order to outline what artists' reading specifically entails. Based on the history of knowledge, the contributions to this volume will then correspondingly elucidate various aspects of how, in the early modern period, artists' education, knowledge, reading and libraries were related to the ways in which they presented themselves.The volume endeavours at long last to go beyond merely publishing inventories by investigating the problem of artists' libraries with a fundamentally stronger emphasis on a discourse-analytical and history-of-knowledge approach. Contributors include: Rainer Bayreuther, Maria Berbara, Cecile Beuzelin, Heiko Damm, Annette de Vries, Kelly Donahue-Wallace, Angela Dressen, Lex Hermans, Eckhard Leuschner, Alexander Marr, Martin Papenbrock, Tico Seifert, Eva Struhal, Michael Thimann, Huub van der Linden, Elsje van Kessel, Iris Wenderholm, and Claus Zittel.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`'This excellent volume, part of Intersections series of Interdisciplinary Studies in Early Modern Culture, focuses on the reading and writing habits of premodern artists who vary in profession from painters and architect designers to musicians [...] this book makes a substantive contribution to the intellectual history of the early modern period. [...] The book's dynamic approach to this subject makes it appealing to historians of a wide range of disciplines including art, architecture design, literature and music''. Lisandra Estevez, Winston-Salem State University. In: Sixteenth Century Journal, Vol. 45, No. 1, 2014, pp. 175-177.
