Reviews

'...an important investigation that can be added to a number of recent works from different fields...it continues a trend in scholarship that takes seriously the woodcut medium as a space for experimentation and novelty. Leitch not only as mapped ethnography in early modern Germany, she also has mapped herself onto the field.' - College Arts Association
