Discover the history of Burgundy in colourful paintings—from the first to the fifteenth century, from the legendary first King of Burgundy, Trophimus, to the last Duke of Burgundy, Philip the Fair!
The Flemish Chronicle of Philip the Fair is a masterpiece of the Ghent-Bruges School and is classified under the rare genre of medieval children’s books. This alone makes it valuable—not to mention the rich illustrations and the illuminator’s great artistic skill. Philip the Fair was seven years old when he received this richly illuminated chronicle, an educational reader intended for the future head of the Burgundian dynasty, which was already over a thousand years old.
In the Flemish Chronicle of Philip the Fair you will discover the fascinating history of Burgundy from a completely new perspective. See it for yourself order the informative documentary portfolio with an original facsimile leaf and preview it, at no obligation, for fourteen days.
Perfect Gothic illumination, tangibly raised gold lettering, a matchless collection of visual typologies, an incomparable interplay of gold and azure ink calligraphy: the content and ornamentation of the Peterborough Psalter is so unique that no other publisher of facsimiles has yet dared to reproduce this manuscript.
Quaternio Lucerne has taken on the challenge—you can already feel the three dimensions of the facsimile in the documentation portfolio, as you run your fingers across the sublime, raised gold calligraphy on the parchment-like paper.
The Peterborough Psalter is so rich in gold ornamentation that it has only been in the exclusive libraries of ruling European houses, from Pope John XXII (1318) to Napoleon (1805). What is it all about? Learn more and order the documentation folder with a four-page facsimile section without any obligation on your part.
Feel the tangibly raised gold calligraphy and admire eight miniatures, the splendid coat-of-arms in gold and silver and the golden initial page – you get all this with the original fine art facsimile double leaf in the documentation folder.
