Ashley Gonik (Harvard University, Massachusetts) wanted to find out who was responsible for the creation of tables in early modern books. Was it the authors or rather the typesetters and printers who determined how they would look? What techniques were used to illustrate scientific publications? To find out, she studied dozens of sixteenth-century books closely. Research in the archives of the Officina Plantiniana yielded additional data on the wages paid for typesetting and printing these complex publications. She tells all about it in the videos below.
