Proceedings of the Emblem Project Utrecht Conference on Dutch Love Emblems and the Internet (November 2006). DANS Symposium Publications 2.
Distributed for Edita-the Publishing House of the Royal
This unprecedented volume explores the delicate network of visual motifs and textual mottos that characterize Dutch love emblems. Learned Love demonstrates how emblem books form a web of closely interrelated references, which the contributors liken to the Internet, and traces the cutting-edge digitization project from inception to finish. This book will interest anyone intrigued by the fruitful gray areas between image and text, scholarship and technology.
