Your course would really interest me if you included information on the
relationships between the different artists you describe above. How did a
scribe get his work? Did the poet approach him? and then find an artist to
engrave the plates that fit the text? Who commisioned and paid the
bookbinder? Did a patron foot the bill? I think we take these
relationships for granted today, because it is so easy to find an
appropriate craftsperson in our information age. But what was happening in
the 16th century?
