About us

We reproduce historical manuscripts and documents as true to the original replicas, undistinguishable from the original in every aspect. They can be used as ambassadors of heritage without endangering the irreplaceable originals.

Our fine art facsimiles are appropriate:

  • 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 during 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.

Binding & Refinement: Normally the binding of the original, or a similar binding of that time, mostly in real leather. Luxury Editions are refined with real gold embossing, edge gilding or real gold printing as a really unique gift for important guests and friends.

Scholarly Commentary: giving insights on the background of the original.

The Coronation Gospels of the Holy Roman Empire

Originating around 800 AD in the palace school of the German emperor Charlemagne, the Codex Aureus, written in golden ink on purple-coloured pages, evolved to be the most important medieval book of all: as part of the imperial regalia it played a central role in every coronation of the Roman-German kings.
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.

The Stars of Samarkand. Ulugh Beg’s Book of the Fixed Stars by Al-Sufi

The skies and their empirical observation have fascinated people worldwide – and this manuscript gives us a glimpse of fabled Samarkand, mythical center of the Silk Road in the 15th century and synonymous with oriental splendor under the Timurids. Ulugh Beg, a scientist on a ruler’s throne, had the famous 10th-century text of Al-Sufi calligraphed and painted as a magnificent manuscript for his library, depicting star constellations in 72 unique miniatures.
