Book Description

Art has been as significant as text in the history of book design and production. This collection of papers examines the place of illustration and innovation, both conceptual and technical, in the relation of image to text in books of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, both in Europe and that outreach of European culture in the Pacific, New Zealand. Topics of the papers range from the work of Marcel Duchamp and Kazimir Malevich to the design of multimodal books and the early development of 3D printing.
