Aldus Manutius: The Invention of the Publisher

January 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EST

Sponsored by The Grolier Clbub

Aldus Manutius invented italic type and issued more first editions of the classics than anyone before or since. He also printed the mysterious Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, the most beautiful book of the Italian Renaissance. In celebration of the first monograph in English on Aldus Manutius in over forty years, Grolier Club member and classicist Rhiannon Knol will sit down with author Oren Margolis to discuss the renowned printer of Venice and his redefinition of the role of the book printer from mere manual laborer to learned publisher. Oren Margolis is Lecturer in Renaissance Studies at the University of East Anglia. Aldus Manutius: The Invention of the Publisher (Reaktion Books) is newly released in the U.S.
