from the amazing Plantin-Moretus Museum collection

Antwerp, Museum Plantin-Moretus, August 2013

 

Christophe Plantin's 1580 edition of Johannes Goropius Becanus' Opera. The Dutch physician, linguist, and humanist Goropius (born as Jan van Gorp van der Beke; 1519-1572) theorized that the Brabantic dialect was the oldest language known to man, and in his Hieroglyphica, Goropius "proved" that Egyptian hieroglyphics represented Brabantic.

An edition of Ovid's works, published in 1474 by Jacques le Rouge. The calligraphic initial and the rubrication give the printed text a very hand-written appearance, typical of incunables.

This huge museum in Antwerp is a Unesco world heritage site where you can visit the 16th century printing house and home of publishing families Plantin and Moretus. I sketched a stove which was part of the facility for casting movable lead type.

Museo Plantin Moretus | Antwerp, Belgium

The Museum Plantin-Moretus is unique. It is just as if after 440 years the working day is about to begin for the type founders, compositors, printers and proofreaders in the world-famous printing works. It is a book lovers paradise.

The oldest printing presses in the world are there, intact and ready to roll. The offices and shop echo with conversations between Christoffel Plantijn and aristocratic and scholarly clients from all over the world.

Feast your eyes on the home of the Plantin and Moretus families! Through the drawing rooms, soaking up the atmosphere of life in Antwerp in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and admiring the impressive art collection which includes portraits by Peter Paul Rubens.

Rarefied libraries lined with the breathtaking 30,000 old editions that make up the Moretusses’ collection. Marvel at the magnificent manuscripts and some of the finest examples of European typography.

It is a is a dynamic museum. Highlights from the collection are shown in special exhibitions and other displays. The workshops are a chance for everyone to try their hand at printing, etching or bookbinding. Visitors who have been granted access to the reading room for research purposes can study the books, prints and drawings. There are fun trails through the house for children and opportunities for them to discover their creative side. Finally, the walled garden (seen in previous pictures uploaded by me) is an oasis of peace, conducive to a moment of quiet reflection.
