What was the role of images in the Western tradition? And how did they relate to the printed work? The essays in this wide-ranging collection address these questions by presenting a variety of material, including visual representations that can be read as texts and traditional book illustrations.

The editors offer a critical review of visual arts and texts, encompassing thirteenth-century Spanish miniatures, Italian Renaissance painting and book illustrations, the explosion of inter-arts comparisons in the nineteenth century in the works of such diverse writers as Blake, Mallarmé and D'Annunzio, and the modern debate on the visual arts.

Antonella Braida is Lecturer in Italian at the University of Durham. Giuliana Pieri is Lecturer in Italian and Visual Arts at Royal Holloway, University of London.
