title: Archisesto per formar con facilità li cinque ordini d’architettura
author: Revesi Bruti, Ottavio
date, place: 1627, Vicenza
I chose these pages because I think it’s varied. Here the author has drawn his tools once in 3D and once in 2D perspective. He used these tools (ruler, circle) to create his drawings for the book.
physical properties of the book
The front/back cover and the heart of the book – the contents – are well preserved . There are only some stains, but this is normal for such an old book. Moreover the “paper like” paper is very thin and fragile.
By physically meeting this book it evoke that the author was passionate and hard working.
