Summary
  • "Revealing centuries of symbiosis between the visual and literary arts, The Art of Reading brings together works by the many great artists who took inspiration from the printed word"--Provided by publisher
  • 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
