We haven't seen this edition yet with just a few books under our belt, but it will.

An illustrated textbook has a common history, subject or idea that has been created through the set of images that make up the work.

A" Bilderbuch für Kinder" is one for which kids are a potentially public. It shows mutual understanding, skills and appreciation for the young.

An invigorating welcome

Woodblock print initiates were used in some of the early books in print. In 1457, Johann Fust and Peter Schoeffer produced the Latin Psalter, which contains a dozen finely engraved firsts. In 1461, the very first illustrated (typographic) books were edited by the clergyman Albrecht Pfister (c. 1420 - 1470) in Bamberg.

Little is known about him outside his books, and that he was Bishop George I of Schaumberg's bishop's aide. Pfister, by the way, was one of the first to popularly used. Out of the three issues of an illustrated Bible, Biblia Paulum or Paupers' Bible, which he publishes between 1462 and 1463, two were in German, one in Latin.

The Biblia Paulum had already proved itself before its typographical publication as xylography or block-entry. Soon after the printing process was introduced in Italy, the first illustrated volume was released in the Italian states by Ulrich Han, a well-known Italian printing company based in Rome. In Rome, in 1467, he publishes Cardinal Torquemada's meditations on the Christian way of living, illustrated with thirty-three woodblock prints.

Guenther Zainer's visit to Augsburg encountered mistrust and then a real war. This is the lumberjack's guild, which fears that Zainer's new-fangled print will be published on ?containing! In 1441 Venice** had also tried to defend its printmakers by prohibiting the import of imprinted fabrics and blankets. He was allowed to make books with prints on the proviso that he only used loggers from the regional lumberjack guild.

Without a shadow of a doubt, Zainers first volume of 1468 does not contain any woodblock prints. Zainers first volume with woodblock prints was released in 1471, Augsburg's first illustrated volume. From a technical point of view, the Paupers' Bible is not the first illustrated Bible. Actually, they can't even be described as the Bible.

In addition, these books were usually only 40 to 50 pages long. Günther Zeainer probably published the first illustrated Bible with the full and uncut text in Roman in Augsburg. Zainers Bible in English contains seventy-two woodblock prints or historicized engravings, and although it is not dated in a later reproduction, it originates from the time around 1474.

The best of all the illustrated books of the 15th millennium can be found in Italy, especially in the last part of the last millennium. Jenson, Ratdolt and Aldus Manutius, their famous and famous Hypnerotomachia Poliphili (Venice, 1499), a raised correspondence of writing and illustrations. Lorenzo Morgiani and Johannes Petri published a large number of beautiful illustrated books in Florence, among them an issue of Epistolae et Evangelii (1495) - one of the most beautiful incunabula in Florence.

The French books of lessons are great illustrations at the end of the 15th and the opening of the 16th century. Splendid edgings, labels and engravings make some of the most beautiful books of all times - some, like those of Philippe Pigouchet in Paris, who used both woodblock prints and metal engravings (fl. 1488-1518), which compete with their illumined manuscripts.

In the middle of the 16th c. woodblock prints were superseded by gravure printmaking methods - gravure and erasure on metals; a technique that allows both more durability and fine details. Around 550 years have elapsed since Pfister Europa launched Europe in the illustrated album. So next chocolate is an illustrated page in beautiful colour, think of our ancestors, who made everything possible through their creativity and abandon.
