The introduction sets forth the double aim of the book: to present the different kinds of letters and postal systems available in Dürer’s time, and to propose a way of thinking about the communicative efficacy of his works of art. The selection of Dürer as the protagonist of this narrative is explained by the survival rate of his correspondences as well as his tendency to include text within the images he made and to write upon those he collected.
