About us

We reproduce historical manuscripts and documents as true to the original replicas, undistinguishable from the original in every aspect. So, they can be used as ambassadors of heritage without endangering the irreplaceable originals.
Such editions can be used in many ways:

  • As an exclusive and very personal gift
  • As a unique ambassador of culture and heritage
  • For study and learning, giving exciting insights into cultural achievements created hundreds of years ago.

The production of each of our editions is carefully monitored, from the first inspection to the taking of photographs and printing, through to the process of gilding and binding. Both, the protection and safeguarding of the original as well as the publication and scientific treatment in the course of the reproduction have always been a top priority.
The manufacture of each of our high quality replicas requires considerable technical knowledge and craftsmanship. Each individual book is the result of many different working steps.

How A Fine Art Reproduction is made
Digitalization: of the single pages with a high-resolution camera and a specially designed framework supporting the precious original without endangering it.
Pre-printing process: each image file has to be reviewed, corrected and prepared individually for the printing process.
Hard proofs: are produced and compared to the original. Colour variances are corrected until the result meets our quality standards.
Printing & attaching gold and silver: depending on the characteristics of the original, respective techniques and materials are used – from gold and silver foils or metallic dust to 23K genuine gold.

Fine Art Edition limited to only 333 copies, with gold leaf and 4 portrait pages of the Evangelists with real 23-carat gold, silver- and gold-plated 3D-cover with synthetic sapphire.
