Our subject La Vie Artistiqe has become a whole lot better (and easier to stay awake in !) since our topic changed from analysing 19th century artworks to typograpy and advertising throughout the 20th century. We went on a little excursion last week, to the Musée de l’Imprimarie to check out how printing has evolved over the centuries.
Some of the younger students were excited about the old Macintosh Classics (I just felt like I was back in Year 9 computer class) but the highlight for me was the page from the Gutenberg Bible – I’ve never seen one !
Well worth a sticky beak if you’re in the area !
