Masterpieces of medieval manuscripts

- for your private collection.

Precious medieval manuscripts –

out of reach?

The Coronation Gospels of Charlemagne, the prayer book of the Queen of Spain, Isabella the Catholic, as well as the Leonardo Da Vinci’s Notebooks: all those master pieces of books are usually owned and preserved by Museums and libraries while the public in rare cases is granted access to these pieces of cultural heritage.

You would like to have a manuscript, making your private collection excel?

The Faksimile Publishing House edits reproductions which live up to the exquisite beauty and perfection of the original. This way, we give the bibliophile Community access to these masterpieces of the illuminated arts which wouldn’t be possible otherwise.

By means of our high publication standards, our reproductions meet the core essence of the original masterpiece up to its very most detail.

The Fine Arts and the Love for Detail are our passion.

What distinguishes our work:

Traditional Bookbinding combined with High-Tech

High quality facsimiles, handcrafted by German traditional book binders and developed according to the highest state of the art in digital photography processing

Science meets Illuminated Arts

All facsimiles are accompanied by a commentary edited by acknowledged arts historians, revealing the origin, context and interpretations of the books, their illuminations and content.

Reproduction heeds the smallest detail

Its reproduction includes the authentic binding and casing, down to its most specific detail. The marks which time leaves on the original are reproduced as well. It’s the closest you can get to the original.

Gold-lining in the facsimile

If the illuminated pictures are covered in real gold spreading, so equally will the reproduction. All materials used, starting from the paper up to the book cover, are reproduced as to match fully the essence the original masterpiece.
