Hypnerotomachia Poliphili

February 10, 2012

The strange and wonderful Hypnerotomachia Poliphili (1499), called by some the most beautiful book of the Italian Renaissance, is the subject of a seminar at Penn Libraries tomorrow. Architectures of the Text: An Inquiry Into the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili will feature Penn professors and librarians, as well as Drexel's own Shushi Yoshinaga, assistant professor of graphic design at Westphal College, in an exploration of 'the beauty, meaning, and mysteries contained within the book's text and images.' If you can't make it to the event or can't get enough of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, come on down to Drexel University Archives and take a look at our facsimile reproduction of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili.
