Abstract:

A centuries-old tradition of manuscript production in Renaissance Florence was unique and valued throughout Europe. As printed books were introduced into the Florentine life, the hand-painted initial letters were the connecting thread that linked the early printed books to the art of the manuscript. This connection was possible in Florence because of its geographical location; the elite class, such as the rulers of Florence, the Medici family, who admired and collected manuscripts for their libraries; and the concentration of numerous artists. Between 1490-1510, the manuscript illumination found a new life in the woodcuts that transformed colorful miniature paintings into the black-and-white interpretations produced by the printing press.
