In early sixteenth-century Italy, works of art came to be understood as unique objects made by individuals of genius, giving rise to a new sense of the artist as the author of his images. At the same time, the practice of engraving, a medium that produced multiple printed images via collaborative processes, rapidly developed. In this book, Lisa Pon examines how images passed between artists and considers how printing techniques affected the authorship of images.
Pon focuses on the encounters between the engraver Marcantonio Raimondi and three key artists: Albrecht Dürer, Raphael, and Giorgio Vasari. She reevaluates their work in light of the tensions between possessive authorship and practical collaboration in the visual arts.

"engrossing, well-written... a major contribution to the growing body of literature on printmaking in the Italian Renaissance. Peppered with insights, often delivered in elegant turns of phrase, Pon's book is essential reading for all who are interested in how Renaissance prints were made, published and described in the sixteenth century; what they meant to their original makers and consumers; and above all, how they contributed to the fashioning of artistic identity."--Mark Zucker, Visual Resources
