Faksimile Verlag - Back into the Future!

Faksimile Verlag was founded in Lucerne in Switzerland 43 years ago and since then has had a long and moving history; in 2017 I succeeded in taking over the facsimile business of Faksimile Verlag.

I am very excited about being able to continue the work of the world‘s oldest Fine Art Facsimile publishers, Faksimile Verlag and Müller & Schindler in the usual quality and long-standing tradition.

For the first time, it is now possible to coordinate the programs of these two publishing companies in the interests of science and research, to make an optimized offer for the bibliophile community and those passionate about medieval illuminated manuscripts, and to provide access to the cultural heritage of the Middle Ages in a contemporary form.

The highest priority for us is the highest possible reproduction quality, perfect craftsmanship and intensive scientific work. In all these areas the possibilities of Faksimile Verlag and Müller & Schindler Publishers – founded in 1965 – are to be used together.

You can experience that already: please have a look at the first new limited editions of Faksimile Verlag presented in this catalogue. Enjoy a journey through 1000 years of book illumination with this catalogue, let yourself be inspired by our editorial program – and experience the proven quality of our unique editions!

I am pleased announce a very special publication in collaboration with the Institut de France for the end of 2022/beginning 2023: the publication of the first manuscript from the series of notebooks from Leonardo da Vinci (Manuscripts A-M).

You can already have a glimpse of one of those wonderful handwritten pages through our Living Manuscripts App or look at the full information on the upcoming publications of the whole notebook series and the excelling team of editors f the commentary, which will be published in 2023.

Yours sincerely,
Charlotte Kramer
