Butterflies on Every Page

The Science of Butterfly Illustration through the Ages

Location: Museum of Book - Dr. Radslav Kinsky Chateau, 597 02 Žďár nad Sázavou

BUTTERFLIES ON EVERY PAGE The Science of Butterfly Illustration through the Ages This exhibition explores the riches of the book collection of the Library of the National Museum, including the Libraries of the State Palaces, known for their historical books, focusing on the study of butterflies. For centuries, richly illustrated and profusely coloured books have aroused the interest of both experts and public. There is particular interest in the subject of butterfly imagery in the manuscript tradition. The exhibition will include collections of real butterflies allowing visitors compare these attractive insects with their book representations, and see for themselves how true to nature the scientific images are, compared to the real thing.
