Liber Chronicarum

Here's a cool thing: The Liber Chronicarum or Nuremberg Chronicle. It's one of the best documented early printed books to incorporate text and images, predating Durer's Apocolypse. Written in Latin by Hartmann Schedel in 1493, it is a bible paraphrase and history of the world from creation to the final judgement. It's chock full of bizarre theology and illustrations. It was clearly a strong influence on the Retablo de Ciudad Rodrigo, particularly this image which has direct correlations in Bartolome's Chaos panel. You should do an image search, I think you'll like it.
