Description:

Neuware - The publication constitutes a sort of vademecum catalogue for the joint exhibition Mots et monnaies, organized by the Fondation Martin Bodmer, the KIKPE Foundation and the Benaki Museum at the Bodmer Museum (Cologny, Geneva; November 2012 ¿ March 2013). In an original attempt, manuscripts and books are combined with coins, as well as with other artefacts, highlighting the intertwined relation between words and images. The focus is turned on legends, stories, traditions, persons and events which are echoed both on written/printed material and on numismatic material, in a fashion that shows how the two media resemble, differ and complement each other and how their messages were disseminated in human societies through the ages. This prestigious full colour catalogue contains a lavish photographic essay by photographer Laziz Hamani and is edited by Luc Derycke. 380 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: From Hellenic Greece to Rome and Byzantium, coins functioned in part as narrative objects, engraved with images of gods and lords, planets and cities, heroes and legends. Words and Coins analyzes these copper coins in their relation to Western folklore, myth and literature, spanning the fifth century BC to the fifteenth century. Examining books and manuscripts, as well as other artifacts, the catalogue highlights and elaborates on the ongoing complex relationship between the language arts and image-making. Words and Coins examines how the two media resemble, differ and complement each other, and how their respective messages were distributed in human societies throughout the ages. This gorgeous publication, edited by Belgium-based design studio Luc Derycke, contains a photographic essay by photographer Laziz Hamani.
