The Song of Songs. Berlin Gutenberg Bible
Storage: Grey presentation folder
Gutenberg-Bibel II/15v: The Song of Songs – Cantica Canticorum (1,1-2,14) This page in the Gutenberg Bible contains the most charming and perhaps best-known Song of Solomon. The gentle, moving and extremely erotic words uttered by young lovers in courtship, so often quoted, are absolutely unparalleled: »I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys«. The illumination in our handmade reproduction is based on the Berlin copy of the Gutenberg Bible. The initial »O« in »Osculetur me...« depicts the two lovers sitting opposite one another. Tendrills fill the borders with flowers, in particular the aquilegia that represents the Trinity, love and sexual power. A nightingale, the symbol of love and desire, perches atop one of the leaves. 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 cmStorage 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.

Walther von der Vogelweide, the most outstanding lyricist of the German Middle Ages, is a poet of rare stature, who will remain of outstanding importance for all time. Since, the life of the richly talented singer falls into a time when Germany shone brightly in power and splendour, but was also not infrequently hit by political and church-political storms, his songs are all the more significant for the German people, since from the changing wayside, besides atmospheric pictures of the soul, thrilling contemporary paintings emerge.
