Gospel of John
Frame: unframed | Variants : Hand-gilded
Gutenberg-Bibel II/235, The Gospel of John (1,1-15): »In principio erat verbum« »In the beginning was the Word« This page from the first printed book in the world is a wonderful gift for all those who work in modern or historic media. Our print is beautiful in its simplicity and clear design. A real typographic finesse: The red lines of the left and right columns, together with the centre margin, form a cross across the page. Our variants  Standard Ribbed deckle-edge paper, format 42 x 30 cm Three-colour press prints produced on historical Gutenberg Museum machines (Original Heidelberg Cylinder) in three different print runs on mechanically-produced, hand-torn, ribbed deckle-edge paper. The outlines of ornamentation are also printed.  Hand-coloured Ribbed deckle-edge paper, format 42 x 30 cm, frame format 48 x 36 cm  The standard pages (see above) are coloured by hand by our artists using tempera and gold inks.  Hand-gilded  Format ca. 45 x 32 cm, frame format 54 x 43 cm These high-quality prints are produced as a handpress print in three colours on the Korrex Hannover on handmade paper bearing the Gutenberg Museum watermark. Finely embossed gold embellishments are added to the tempera ink colouring using a skill very few artists still master. A base material is applied to the paper layer by layer in an elaborate and time-consuming process to form a platform for the 22-carat gold leaf. This raises the ornaments from the surface of the paper to perfectly display the elegant shimmer of real gold. Deluxe (Berlin Bible)Deluxe (Göttingen Bible)

As at Gutenberg's workshop, only the text in black is printed, with everything else added by hand.
