Padilla C. - Anderson B.
A red like no other - How cochineal colored the world
New York Skira Rizzoli 2015 Hardcover with dustjacket, 319 pages with index, text English, new condition. The captivating story of the pursuit of the most powerful color. A global symbol of power, wealth, mystery, and sexuality, red has seduced viewers and inspired artists for millennia. Painters and other artists engaged in a quest for the source of the perfect red that conveyed the luxury, spirit, and substance of living. In the 1520s, Spanish explorers found it in the grand Aztec markets—in a dye derived from the cochineal insect. The ensuing global spread of American cochineal changed art, culture, science, and trade for centuries. A Red Like No Other follows the precious bug juice from Mexico to Europe and beyond as it insinuated itself into all forms of art, politics, and commerce to color the world in vivid red hues. The images show how the colorant touched cultures and artists worldwide, including pre-Columbian weavers, painters of Spain’s Golden Age, Middle Eastern rug makers, and Navajo weavers. El Greco, Tintoretto, Velázquez, van Dyck, Rembrandt, Vermeer, and van Gogh used it, as did Spanish fashion icon Mariano Fortuny. Today contemporary artists and designers continue to embrace the colorant for its beauty and meaning. An international team of more than forty scholars and experts brings a wide spectrum of original research on the symbolic meaning of red, the material meaning of cochineal in art and trade, and the history of the artists driven to find the perfect red.

ANDRIOLO, Azzurra Elena - Suzanne REYNOLDS
A Catalogue of Western Book Illumination in the Fitzwilliam Museum and the Cambridge Colleges. Part Five: Volume One: Books Printed in Italy before 1501
Harvey-Miller 2017 Size:230 x 330 mm. Illustrations: 330 col. Hard cover and dust jacket
¶ The catalogue focuses on books with decoration intended to ornament rather than to rubricate the text, that include one or more of the following elements: miniatures, woodcuts with contemporary colour added by hand, historiated initials and borders, other types of ornamental initials with or without borders, pen-flourished initials, and a variety of drawings or sketches. In bringing to bear on early printed books the same level of attention to the individual features of particular copies, the editors hope to further erode the artificial barriers between those working on illumination in manuscripts and in printed books

Maistresse of My Wit. Medieval Women, Modern Scholars
Turnhout, Brepols, 2004. 24,5 cm, X+384 p. Hard cover
¶ This volume explores the reciprocal relationships that can develop between medieval women writers and the modern scholars who study them. Published in the series : Making the Middle Ages, volume 7. University of Sydney Centre for Medieval Studies. "The editors' courage to explore the mutually enriching qualities of medievalism and feminism and the various interconnections between medieval and contemporary women (and men) deserves the highest praise. Indeed, I would go so far as to recommend this volume to any and all students who are thinking of making the Middle Ages their primary area of academic research."
