Epistle of Jerome to Paulinus. Berlin Gutenberg Bible
Storage: Grey presentation folder
Gutenberg Bible I/1, Epistle of Jerome to Paulinus: »Frater Ambrosius...« The Gutenberg Bible opens with a letter by church father Jerome to the priest Paulinus. He outlines the holy scriptures and writes that in study »you can make no progress unless you have a guide to show you the way«. He therefore asks Paulinus to devote himself to a life of piety, to place his trust in a mentor and to himself work as an interpreter. The text in this form is found neither in the Latin Vulgate nor in modern-day Bibles. The large, elaborately designed initial »F« of »Frater Ambrosius« shows a scholar with a blue robe handing an open book to a tonsured young man cloaked in red. One interesting detail in the original is the smudged ink blot in the lower margin that looks like a headless bird. Our artist has turned this into a little songbird – complete with head!The manufacture of our deluxe page Our deluxe pages from the Gutenberg Bible are exact reproductions of the historical originals.

The Letter of Paul to the Romans. Göttingen Gutenberg Bible
Gutenberg Bible II/249v: The Letter of Paul to the RomansEnlarged detail, special edition with 150 numbered copies, format ca. 33 x 28 cm. This detail enlargment is based on the Göttingen copy of the Gutenberg Bible. It shows two decorative initials embedded in the perfect symmetry of Gutenberg's column of text. The illumination is of extraordinary mastery, with each of the precise brushstrokes visible right down to the last detail. The handwritten red header that escapes from the ordered block of text seems particularly authentic. The original scribe obviously did not want to perfectly align his rubrication with the printed column – although there was enough space to do so. Gutenberg, however, always produced absolutely exact columns of text over 1,200 pages – and this using lead type. 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.Storage Our deluxe Bible prints are supplied in a handmade presentation folder (51 x 39 cm) that perfectly protects the gold leaf.
