Hans Holbein's Dance of Death redefined the death emblem books, offering a framework for artists afterwards to emulate (and they did!). There are forty-one plates in the original 1538 edition, all reproduced here at 4.5" by 6" in size (four times larger than the originals), and include the original title in English, the German text accompanying each image, as well as a Latin verse. These are followed by the original Dance of Death Alphabet, an initial caps set.
All the images in this book have been scanned from the original 1538 edition and digitally cleaned up for reproduction. Available in two formats: hard cover and soft cover.
