The visualization of the circulation of books over time and space

Cristina Dondi will present 15cV, a powerful tool for the visualization of the movement of 15th-century printed books, from the time and place where they were printed to where they are today, via the many places and people who distributed, purchased, owned, and annotated them over the following 500-year period.

Unanswered historical queries on the impact of printing on early modern society can now be addressed for the first time. Cristina will illustrate how the project which is making visualization possible - probably one of the largest collaborative enterprises in the humanities - was set up and keeps growing.
