INCUNABULA: The Art & History of Printing in Western Europe, c. 1450-1500


Stephanie Stillo of the Library of Congress's Rare Book and Special Collections Division recently created this gorgeous story map that highlights the history of early print in western Europe (along with a few earlier manuscripts) with the aid of a number of items in the LOC's rich collection. This interactive story map was created using Esri Story Maps. As visitors explore this story map, they have the opportunity to explore a number of fascinating digitized documents. These documents include a medical manuscript created in south Germany circa 1410; Apocalypsis Sancti Johannis (Apocalypse of Saint John), a popular fifteenth-century book created using xylography; the Gutenberg Bible; and much more. The story map is organized both chronologically and geographically, allowing visitors to browse by chapter, including "Before the 1450s," "Germany," "Italy," and "Low Countries."
