Courtiers and Cannibals, Angels and Amazons – The Art Of The Decorative Cartographic Titlepage


by Rodney Shirley

Published earlier this year, Rodney Shirley’s new book is copiously illustrated and offers an informative explanation of some of the most important atlas titlepages from the 1470s to the 1870s. The book “aims to preserve and bring forward for wider appreciation the outstanding works of art that many engraved titlepages and frontispieces represent”.
