The book ” Hieronymi Pradi et Joannis Baptistae Villalpandi societate Jesu in Ezechielem explanations” written by Jerónimo de Prado and Juan Bautista Villalpando is constructed in either the whole page written with descriptive literature in two columns or with fullpage drawings. The written parts surpass the scattered through drawings by far.
They used multiple font sizes for their headings, subheadings and text. At the top of each page of the book, except for the drawing pages, you see in which chapter you are and the number of the page. Often the first letter of a new paragraph is a squiggly decorated initial. The two columns are well-defined and only the side notes disrupt the margins. The margin on the inner side of the book is always smaller than the outer margin. At the beginning and the end of each chapter is a small drawn symbol.
The page before and after the drawing are always empty, probably because of the very thin pages and the protection of the highly detailed drawings. In this book there are no architectural drawings, details or schema, only perspective views. In almost every drawing angels are included as well as humans and books. There is always just one drawing on each page and not multiple. Only one of the five drawings fills just one page of the book; the other four are on a double page. Each drawing has a little lettering but they are not numbered and I couldn’t find a reprehension.
Within those 500 pages there are just 5 drawings which is why I came to the conclusion that these drawings are not that important for the text, probably because the text doesn’t need any illustrations and they wanted to focus on the information rather than drawings.
