Some brief overview of book

This work unfolds the idea of nothing out of a Titian painting of Dana and the shower of gold. Jaffees philological and pictorial argument links, across several languages, such seemingly disparate concepts as money, coins, mothers (through the mints matrix), subjects, courtiers, prostitutes (through etymologies that join minting, standing-under, standing-for), ciphers, codes, and the codex form. This ambitious book is a cultural history of the cipher zero as code and as nothing, as the absence of value and the place-holder constructing value.

It traces the wide-ranging implications of nothingnot only in mathematics but also in literature. Along the way, it makes important points about the orthography and editing of early modern texts, and about the material affinities of these texts with painting and minting.
