The natural parchment edition (not parchment paper, nor parchment paper, but 100% natural parchment of lamb in the traditional way, without chemical treatments), is extremely complex and unique, and makes each of its copies an original copy of the manuscript of the XV century, especially when to the copies of this edition an accelerated aging process of about 100 years has been added, in a laborious and artisanal process, resulting in a spectacular work as if it were a medieval manuscript. The use of parchment, a natural organic element, as well as manual processes in each copy, including the flat and raised golds, according to the illuminations and as found in the original codex, makes each copy unique for themselves. Exclusive facsimiles handcrafted on natural parchment, recovering the beauty and authenticity of ancient illuminated manuscripts. An excellence for the best libraries, collectors and bibliophiles, a joy for the senses that will last for centuries.
