Workshop: Scientific Book Illustration

Fisher Workshop

Location: Maclean Hunter Room
Time: 6:00-7:30pm

This workshop will explore the methods that early printers used to illustrate scientific books and how they were used to illustrate a range of complex scientific concepts, from Euclid’s geometry to Copernican heliocentrism to the minute details of human blood vessels. Participants will learn to identify prints made by woodblock, metal plate engraving, lithography and more – while working with some of the most highly illustrated books from the Fisher’s collections.

The workshop will be led by Alexandra Carter, the Fisher's History of Science & Medicine Librarian.
