From the Publisher"The book is well illustrated with excellent colour plates, frame sections and, in some cases, paint cross sections, infrared and chromatogram graphs. The reverses of almost all the frames are illustrated. The quality and range of illustrations sets a new standard for a catalogue of frames. The book includes an introduction on Renaissance materials and techniques and a glossary. It is arranged in five sections, tabernacle frames, cassetta and tondo frames, mirror frames, Sansovino frames and, finally, a chapter devoted to ‘Part Renaissance and Renaissance style frames’. As a technical study, this book is exceptional."
