We give lectures on the subject of facsimiles around the world, like here at the International Medieval Congress at the University of Leeds, and are partners with universities and libraries all over the world, as well as the highest state, federal, and ministerial authorities ...
We are regular attendees at events such as the annual ARLIS/NA Conference, as seen here in 2019 in Salt Lake City, the "Mormon Capital of the World"...
...such as at the Frankfurt Book Fair, where we have maintained our own stand for years.
Over 1,500 facsimiles have come onto the market in the last 100 years. Their prices range from a few hundred to many thousands of Euros, but how can you stay on top of things and find the "right" facsimile for yourself? We have developed this facsimile guide for you...

What is a facsimile? The replica of the original, but what exactly has been facsimiled, who produces these facsimiles, and by whom are they purchased? All these questions and more will be answered for you here.
Curious about how facsimiles are made? The production of a facsimile is a complicated, tedious, and cost-intensive process. Here we will break that process down for you and show you the steps that are necessary for the creation of a new facsimile.
