Book of the Month
The Ivory Mirror: The Art of Mortality in Renaissance Europe by Stephen Perkinson, Naomi Speakman, Katherine Baker, Elizabeth Morrison and Emma Solberg
We often imagine the Renaissance as an age of exceptional human progress and artistic achievement. But, intriguingly, macabre images proliferated in precisely this period: unsettling depictions of Death personified, of decaying bodies, of young lovers struck down in their prime.  190 colour illustrations.
