We are always treasure hunting, searching for visual gold in rare books:

Our adventure takes us to archives, libraries and museums where illustrative rare books are waiting to be found.

One of our amazing findings is Ernst Haeckels work, Kunstformen der Natur

In the age of discovery, thousands of fascinating images were drawn, explaining topics and documenting travels. We spend hours searching through collections of these old and rare books to find the perfect motifs.

We work on the digitalised illustrations, enhancing, remixing and beautifying. 

We may do as little as enhancing colours and compositions. Often we re-mix, combine, twist and hybridize illustrations from different parts of the world and different time periods, to add new context and interest to the illustrations.

We print all images on a high-quality matte art paper using Japanese archival ink for vivid long-lasting colours and sought-after intensity. 
We print on demand to limit production waste.

Then we send out the delivery boy.
Please note we do not always deliver personally on bike.
Quite often we use UPS or another postal supplier.

Also please note that in some areas we use skilled local print studios to print for us, so you can receive your order much easier and with less transportation costs to both you and the environment.
