Museum of Art, Santa Barbara

A Latin term originally meaning cradle or birthplace, incunabula now applies to books printed before 1500 A.D. Printing is design, of course, and also art, needless to add. Superb proof of this is the exhibit here through the courtesy of Ferdinand Roten of Baltimore, Maryland. The collection, assembled over a forty-year period by Frederick Werther, also includes maps and illustrations.
