J. Wynn Rousuck We tend to think of the beautiful book as the product of the medieval age, when manuscripts were written and illuminated individually by hand. But the beautiful book didn't end with the development of the printing press in the 15th century. Not only did manuscripts continue to be produced for wealthy customers, but those producing printed books also sought to make them beautiful. With the new popularity of the ancient world, classical motifs appeared everywhere, and clear, graceful typefaces were developed. These developments are explored in "Renaissance VTC Books and Manuscripts of the Humanist Age," the Walters Art Gallery's latest show in its manuscript gallery. Among the works on view is Book of Hours containing this page with a representation of the Madonna and child, and Renaissance classical motifs in the borders. At the Walters, 600 N. Charles St., through Jan. 29. Call (410) 547-9000.
