Merlo’s Map

Newberry Digital Exhibit

This digital exhibit/publication for the Newberry focused on early printers and the book trade in Venice. The interface uses tiled historical maps – with highlights, overlaid tags, curated entries (printers, sites) and comparative cartographies (local maps) – to enable viewers to wander the streets, as one might wander the stacks.
