It´s a brief description of a new research database of Czech book illustrations


E-illustration is a research database of book illustrations published in the Czech Lands up to 1550. It is an ongoing pioneering project of the Library of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and the National Library of the Czech Republic. The bilingual research database will provide access to nearly 6,000 printed images used by Czech printers in the first phase of the history of book printing.

Veronika,

Thanks for this exciting news. Looking forward to being able to consult this material.
I’ve added the link and brief description to the documentation page where the websites using Iconclass are listed.
With the next update of the documentation pages the information will be visible there too.

Hans

This looks really great. Is there a timeline for when the database will launch?

The database should be fully operational by the end of this year.
