The Gouda cartoons are the original designs for the stained glass windows of the city’s main church. This volume provides the first complete overview of these sketches, which date from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The editors have collected images of all the surviving cartoons, as well as essays that delve into the lives and tools of draughtsmen during this period, and provides new information on early modern glazing techniques. A full description of the restoration efforts over the past centuries, as well as the recent conservation finished in 2011, make The Cartoons of the Sint Janskerk in Gouda an impressively comprehensive account of these extraordinary sketches.
