Exposition organisée à la Bibliotheca Wittockiana du 17 juin au 9 septembre 2000.
This monograph is a tribute to the prince of typographers, Giambatista Bodoni (1740-1813) whose genius is not only refelcted in the creating and drawing of typographical characters, but also in their engraving and founding. The authors indicate also less known aspects of his activities: his first experiences as a printer in Rome, the editorial adventure of the Cours d'Etude de Condillac, his passion for exotic types through countless manuals, the Greek, Latin and Italian classics, the English editions, illustrated works, scientific books, the imitators... Some of the prestigious provenances of these rare editions are reflected in the bindings.
103 Ateliers en 210 reliures conservées à la Bibliotheca Wittockiana
Author: Paul Culot
In France, the Romantic Movement was established by 1820. Book related art forms, i.e., typography, illustration and bookbinding, were part of this vast artistic realm. Bookbinders and gilders used beautiful materials and newly engraved tools, reflecting the contemporary artistic style. The collections of the Bibliotheca Wittockiana include more than 200 works bound in France between 1820 and 1855. The majority of these luxury bindings, mostly of which are signed, were realized in well-known Parisian workshops as well as in quite unknown provincial workshops. This volume contains the reproductions of 210 signed bindings and their descriptions, reproductions of all the bookbinders tikets, 25 colour illustrations, a dictionary of 103 workshops, and several indexes. Because of the information he adds to already known, badly, or completely unknown binders, Paul Culot's publication is the indispensable supplement to the works by Ramsden and Fléty.
