Antwerp Seminar of the EMoBookTrade Project, Auditorium of the Museum Plantin-Moretus, Antwerp, 26 August 2021

Illustrations were one of the factors which influenced the prices for books.

Naturally when we were at the Museum Plantin-Moretus we had to have a look at the impressive collection of woodblocks.

Here you see 2 blocks and their printed images.

It was such a treat to work with books *in hand* again when we were in Antwerp.

Special thanks to @kristofselle who enriched our trip with additional & insightful information on Plantin 📚📖
