Hasan Niyazi from the excellent history of art blog three pipe problem has a very nice review of the catalogue for a Renaissance Prints exhibition, which discusses the influence of the new medium of print making in this period also in the natural sciences. Last year I wrote a post on just this subject, “Where the pictures came from”, that discussed the technological and artistic developments that were necessary to make this medium available to the authors of science books.
