520 8  Image-transforming techniques such as close-up, time lapse,
       and layering are generally associated with the age of 
       photography, but as Florike Egmond shows in this book, 
       they were already being used half a millennium ago. 
       Exploring the world of natural history drawings from the 
       Renaissance, 'Eye for Detail' shows how the function of 
       identification led to image manipulation techniques that 
       will look uncannily familiar to the modern viewer. Egmond 
       shows how the format of images in nature studies changed 
       dramatically during the Renaissance period, as high-
       definition naturalistic representation became the rule 
       during a robust output of plant and animal drawings. She 
       examines what visual techniques like magnification can 
       tell us about how early modern Europeans studied and 
       ordered living nature, and she focuses on how attention to
       visual detail was motivated by an overriding question: the
       secret of the origins of life. Beautifully and precisely 
       illustrated throughout, this volume serves as an arresting
       guide to the massive European collections of nature 
       drawings and an absorbing study of natural history art of 
       the sixteenth century
