Product Information

Gutenberg-Bibel II/235, Prologue, The Gospel of St. John: "In principio erat verbum"

This is the page the Gutenberg Museum printer rolls off the replica press at demonstrations held for visitors from all over the world. "In the beginning was the word ..."; this famous Biblical quote is a collectable for all disciples of the art of printing, the media, advertising - and of course, the Bible.

Production

Our Bible prints are produced at the Gutenberg Museum in their original format on historical machines. Unlike Gutenberg we print the individual pages in three colours, with red and blue display type, headers and beginnings of lines and the outlines of the ornamentation, lending even our uncoloured pages a very decorative appearance.

The Bible page is available as a three-colour press print and in a hand-coloured and a gold leaf version. Applying the fine, raised gilt decoration is a skill which very few artists still master. Here, 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.
