The contribution is dedicated to the vanishingly small number of ancient layout ‘recipes’ that survive today. The analysis highlights operating mechanisms and compares their characteristics, thereby uncovering the existence of some important constants (in relation to the distribution of written and unwritten spaces or the relationships between margins), as well as some equally significant differences between the rules attributable to different historical periods and book cultures.

Abstract

The contribution is dedicated to the vanishingly small number of ancient layout ‘recipes’ that survive today. The analysis highlights operating mechanisms and compares their characteristics, thereby uncovering the existence of some important constants (in relation to the distribution of written and unwritten spaces or the relationships between margins), as well as some equally significant differences between the rules attributable to different historical periods and book cultures.
