    This is an interdisciplinary study of Christopher Plantin's pioneering role in the production & distribution of books with engraved & etched illustrations in 16th-century Europe. Using the rich archival sources at the Plantin-Moretus Museum in Belgium, it examines the artists who worked on these illustrations, the types of illustrations that appealed to specific markets, & the technological, cultural, & economic constraints under which Christopher Plantin operated as he ventured into this new area of publishing.
