Jost de Negker (c. 1485 - 1544) was a cutter of woodcuts and also a printer and publisher of prints during the early 16th century, mostly in Augsburg, Germany. He was a leading formschneider or blockcutter of his day, but always to the design of an artist. He is closely tied to the evolution of the fine woodcut in Northern Europe. For Adam von Bartsch, although he did not usually design or draw, the quality of his work, along with that of Hans Lützelburger and Hieronymus Andreae, was such that he should be considered as an artist
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
