Tabula Picta
“Madero’s book is a contribution both to the history of the property rights to artistic works and to the history of ideas about material things. . . . Tabula Picta demonstrates, in effect, that the category of the materiality of the text is . . . subject to historical variations that depend not only on the availability of particular techniques or materials. Perhaps even more, it is subject to the variable and plural categories that enable us, in different registers of experience and practice, to provide names, order, and attributions to things.”–from the Foreword by Roger Chartier
