from the London Book Fair
We saw less limited editions and facsimiles at the fair this year, but were very happy to catch up with the glamorous Lucia and Francesca from Franco Cosimo Panini. You may remember Panini as producers of stickers and books to put them in for children, however Lucia's father was an enthusiastic antiquarian book collector and that led him into publishing renaissance masterpieces. Click on their name to see the fabulous books on their website.
Also at the show was Armin Sinnwell of Faksimile Verlag. Armin always has something stunning on display and this year he excelled himself with the Codex Aureus, which he is proudly showing off in the photo. It is a breathtaking work and limited to just 333 copies.
