Hypnerotomachia Poliphili is one of the most famous books in the world, a strange, allegorical, erotic romance, originally published in 1499 and endlessly referred to in studies of art and culture ever since. The edition published by Thames & Hudson in 1999 (in the same size and format as the original) was the first complete English translation. is about a third smaller – but retains all the text and illustrations. The original woodcut illustrations are a primary source for Renaissance ideas on architecture, landscape and costume and we are making each of them available here to study on screen or to print out.
