German biography of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
In his work Ludwig Nohl writes about the life of his fellow countryman Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart beginning with travelling in his childhood and youth around Europe until his marriage with Constanze Weber and his tragic death. As it is often the case Mozart was only insufficiently regarded throughout his life but is a gift to following generations that we can be grateful for.

The manufacture of our deluxe page Our deluxe pages from the Gutenberg Bible are exact reproductions of the historical originals. It takes days or weeks to produce them, depending on the richness of the ornamentation, and demands great concentration by the artist – just like in the 15th century. The paper for our deluxe pages is handmade with a watermark and is printed on historical machines owned by the Gutenberg Museum (Korrex Hannover). As at Gutenberg's workshop, only the text in black is printed, with everything else added by hand. The beginnings of sentences are accentuated in red with a quill or brush as upstrokes, with headings also written in by hand (rubrication). The initials and miniatures are sketched into the empty spaces left by Gutenberg for this purpose and in the margins. The base substance for the gold leaf is then applied and the gold laid on top of this. The pages are illuminated in many layers of ink with fine heightening and shading. Finally, the last line ornaments are added and the gold polished. Bible original format: ca. 45 x 33 cm Storage Our deluxe Bible prints are supplied in a handmade presentation folder (51 x 39 cm) that perfectly protects the gold leaf. An informative brochure in English and German on the Gutenberg Bible and its manufacture is also included. Our deluxe pages are also available in a dustproof and airtight frame (57,5-44 cm), which protects the precious gilding with a spacer strip between the glass and the passe-partout.Please note: Framing extends the delivery time by one to two weeks.
