Innovation, technology, and spectacle come together in wondrous works of art and science. Embodying the creative achievements of the royal courts of Europe, the objects featured in Making Marvels demonstrate how European royalty, from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment, expressed status through ingeniously crafted inventions. These works, beautifully illustrated and engagingly discussed, inspired technical advances that had a vast influence on astronomy, engineering, craftsmanship, and even international politics.
