Our vision

A facsimile (from latin fac simile, “make alike”), as word itself reflects, it is made in the image and likeness of the original, almost and exact copy.

From P.I.A.F.’s producing team we pretend to emulate knowledge and skills of those monks and scribes who bequeathed us the most beautiful illuminated pages. For this purpose we use the latest advancements in digital and photography technology, trying to grasp all subtleties and nuances of the finest manuscripts that are kept in the libraries of Madrid, Bologna, Rome, Paris…

Our process

Finally, we edited a study book that complement the facsimile which is made by the best subject matter experts and includes an extense history of the manuscript, miniature and text studies, etc.
