How is a Fine-Art-Facsimile-Edition 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 is 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 highest quality standards.

PRINTING & ATTACHING GOLD AND SILVER: depending on the characteristics of the original, appropriate techniques and materials are used – from gold and silver foils or metallic dust to 23K genuine gold.

BINDING & REFINEMENT: Usually, the binding of the original, or a similar binding of that time, is reproduced - mostly in real leather. Luxury editions are refined with real gold embossing, edge gilding or real gold printing.

A SCHOLARLY COMMENTARY gives scientific insights on the background of the original.

They form a unique collection, illustrating the artistry of calligraphers and book illuminators from more than ten centuries and from different cultural backgrounds in the Islamic world.
Each leaf is exactly reproduced in every aspect down to the smallest detail according to the original.

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 splendour 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.
