“I see it as an expression of appreciation for the work of the whole team that participated in the preparation of the book. Not only the authors themselves, Ľubomír Jankovič, Klára Komorová and Agáta Klimeková, who spent months researching and processing the sources. It is also an award for other colleagues who subsequently took an original and imaginative approach to the photographic and design processing of the book, which in turn multiplied its attractiveness to readers and the book market. They included the most important and most valuable monuments of book culture of this period, preserved in the SNK, “said Katarína Krištofová, General Director of the SNK.

The publication is another in a series of representative monographs that present the richness and diversity of the holdings of the Slovak National Library. This time the prints of the 16th century, which document the beauty of book culture in the turning points of Western civilization. On more than 700 full-color pages, it brings to the professional and lay public the most artistically and historically valuable monuments of this era. The Slovak National Library won the same award in 2015 for the publication Incunabula – Art of European Book Artists by the 15th Century, which introduces the public to the artistically and historically most valuable monuments of the early era of book printing, preserved in the SNK.

The book can be purchased in the premises of the SNK residential building or via objednavky_knihy@snk.sk at a price of € 176.60.
