[BKARTS] Announcement

Dear colleagues,

In celebration of the 700th anniversary of the birth of St. Birgitta,
the Ars Imprimis Press – a Swedish private press, owned & operated by
Mats Broberg – is pleased to announce the publication of a limited
edition of a revelation from Revelationes S. Birgittæ, originally
printed in Lübeck 1492 by Bartholomaeus Ghotan.

The revelation (7:XXXI) is handprinted in letterpress from photopolymer
plates on Hahnemühle 230 gsm mouldmade copperplate paper, 12" × 18" in
size, in English, Latin, and Swedish. The portfolio, covered with
handmarbled paper from Ann Muir, Somerset, England, also includes a
reproduction of a woodcut from the same edition (the frontispiece of
Libri Questionum), and two photogravures, printed at Ateljé Larsen – one
depicting the Skederid sculpture of Birgitta, a late 14th or early 15th
century wood sculpture, presumed to be of Italian origin, and the other
depicting the Royal Library’s Latin edition from 1492, opened where the
revelation in question begins.

This work is limited to 61 copies, 50 of which are for sale, and 11
reserved for rightsholders &c. It is offered at  €165 / £115 / $190,
plus shipping. A colour photograph can be seen at the following address:
