Jeanneret is going directly to express that the discovery of the printing press didn't unavoidably produce extra strong literary texts than these transmitted orally or as hand-printed manuscripts―authors integrated rules of transformation into the method of composing and revising and inspired artistic interpretations from their readers, translators, and imitators. Extending the argument to the visible arts, Jeanneret considers da Vinci's sketches and work, altering depictions of the realm map, the mythological sculptures within the gardens of Prince Orsini in Bomarzo, and lots of different Renaissance works. greater than fifty illustrations complement his analysis.
