The V&A has the greatest collections of maiolica in the world. Tracing the uses of these ceramics - from birth through courtship and marriage rituals - the book provides an engaging insight into the society, art and culture of Renaissance Italy. New photography shows the dazzling colours that appealed when the pieces were first made and that remain so popular with collectors today. Lavishly illustrated with over 150 examples, this book is a comprehensive companion to the art of maiolica.
