Evie Lincoln has been studying and teaching about engraving and early modern Rome with this digital collection of illustrated books. Her primary interest is in the books themselves: how the authors, engravers and publishers presented the information about Rome to their audience. The digital presentation of these rare and expensive books allows readers to study not only the images, but also the text and context of the books. (website?)
