Beyond Words: Book Illustration in the Age of Shakespeare


The printed images in early modern books are a visual delight, but many also add key information and a different or unique perspective. Curated by Caroline Duroselle-Melish, the Folger's curator of early modern books and prints, Beyond Words includes more than 80 illustrated books and prints from the Folger collection from the 15th to 18th centuries—many of which have rarely been displayed before. Video and period illustrations show how images were made and printed. Astoundingly, Beyond Words even includes the woodcut and copper plate from which two of the prints were produced.
