Laura MacLeod of the Indiana University Art Museum provided me this update on an upcoming new book based on medals and plaquettes from the University's Middeldorf collection.
In collaboration with Indiana University Press, we are publishing a book by Arne Flaten, Medals and Plaquettes from the Middeldorf Collection at the Indiana University Art Museum.
The book manuscript is by Arne Flaten, who earned his Ph.D. in art history from Indiana University. He is currently Associate Dean and Associate Professor of Art History at Coastal Carolina University. The manuscript is about the Middeldorf collection of medals and plaquettes, includes pieces from seven European countries, from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries.
As you probably know, Professor Ulrich Middeldorf was one of the world’s most renowned scholars on Renaissance medals, and his personal collection was given to the IU Art Museum by his widow Gloria. Professor Middeldorf was for years director of the distinguished research center, the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florence.
The book will include about 350 color illustrations, and each will have its own entry describing the work’s origins, etc. We hope to include the image of the reducing machine in the book’s introduction.
The manuscript is ready for submission to the publisher but is not yet in the hands of a designer.
Cover art hasn't been prepared yet, but I've asked Laura to keep us posted as the publication date approaches. Sounds like a great book!
