Lettering and Legibility in the Works of Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564)

May 10, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

CMRS Roundtable

The illustrations in Andreas Vesalius’s De humani corporis fabrica libri septem, first published in Basel in 1543, were revolutionary in their number, their quality, and in their integration with the text. In this talk, CMRS Associate Monique Kornell (Independent Scholar) looks at Vesalius’s concerns for the legibility of the identifying characters in the Fabrica illustrations and those for the Epitome of the same year and considers changes he made to the woodblocks for the corrected edition of the Fabrica of 1555.

Advance registration not required. No fee. Limited seating.
