The Book of Proverbs. Ornamental page from the Gutenberg Bible
Gutenberg Bible II/1: Prologue by St Jerome, Book of Proverbs 1:1–18
What’s known as the Sayings of Solomon is the richest, most artistic page in the Berlin copy of the Gutenberg Bible, unmatchable in its perfection and opulence and famous the world over. Like the original our reproduction, accurate in every detail, is unique; the black print is letterpress printed, to which all details of the ornamentation, lettering and illumination are added by hand to create a masterpiece and our most valuable print! The page includes the admonition of Solomon, the son of David and king of Israel, given to his sons, daughters and subjects to lead a prudent life in faith.
Format: ca. 46 x 33 cm (the size may vary slightly with handmade paper)

Information on storage and frames
We supply our ornamental Bible prints in either a grey or burgundy presentation folder (format: 51 x 39 cm) together with a brochure on the Gutenberg Bible. If you would like your print framed, you can choose between a removable frame (format: 57.5 x 44 cm) and a handmade, airtight and dustproof frame with a gilt wooden trim. Both frames protect the costly gold leaf as the glass is raised from the passe-partout and thus from the surface of the print.
