Nowadays, we take objects like books for granted…

But it wasn’t always that way. Step back in time with us as we explore a single title page to learn about the culture in which it was created. Our interdisciplinary study allows you to explore the title page through digital and interactive programs, teaching resources, and in-depth research, all available on this website. Look closely at the title page to see the story of how to live a virtuous life, peruse our digital exhibition to examine the artistic culture of the time, learn about the author who wrote the book, follow the journey of the artist who designed the page, and delve into the life of the printer who published the book. Uncover the fascinating world of Renaissance book culture…

…and also find the path to True Happiness.
