Siloé, arte y bibliofilia

Beatus of Geneva

11th century. Anonymous.

Geneva Library.

An extraordinary discovery of a new codex of the famous series of the Beatus of Liébana, which is also one of the great bibliographical finds of the 21st century.

In Latin. Beneventan and Carolinian minuscule script. 149 pages and 65 miniatures, most of which with gold.

The complete facsimile edition carried out by Siloé scrupulously imitates the texture, cracking and grammage of the original vellum, faithfully respecting its 160 x 250 mm format and other characteristics.

This is a handmade binding accompanied by an extraordinary book of complementary studies in which we are honoured to have obtained the participation of our good and much-missed friend, the great Umberto Eco, author of the immortal The Name of the Rose. The literary sparkle on his vision of the Beati that we include in this volume is a pure delight.

Limited edition of 898 numbered copies attested by notarial certificate.
