Print Quarterly September 2021 (Vol. XXXVIII, No. 3) Issue Published

The current issue of Print Quarterly includes an extensive consideration of the recent publication Renaissance Invention: Stradanus’s ‘Nova Reperta’ by Peter Parshall. The Nova Reperta is a suite of twenty engravings made after designs by the Flemish painter Johannes Stradanus (Jan van der Straet) and published ca. 1599-1603 by the Galle family in conjunction with the Plantin press in Antwerp. The engravings are intended to illustrate Europe’s most important new inventions and discoveries seen from the perspective of the time. The series is of interest to historians of prints and printing but also for anyone concerned with the Renaissance perception of its place in the history human accomplishment and an extended monograph on it long overdue.
