Print Culture in Early Modern France : Abraham Bosse and the Purposes of Print, Paperback / softback Book

Print Culture in Early Modern France : Abraham Bosse and the Purposes of Print Paperback / softback

Description

In this book, Carl Goldstein examines the print culture of seventeenth-century France through a study of the career of Abraham Bosse, a well-known printmaker, book illustrator, and author of books and pamphlets on a variety of technical subjects.

The consummate print professional, Bosse persistently explored the endless possibilities of print - single-sheet prints combining text and image, book illustration, broadsides, placards, almanacs, theses, and pamphlets.

Bosse had a profound understanding of print technology as a fundamental agent of change.

Unlike previous studies, which have largely focused on the printed word, this book demonstrates the extent to which the contributions of an individual printmaker and the visual image are fundamental to understanding the nature and development of early modern print culture.
