Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry is probably the most important illuminated manuscript of the 15th century. This Book of Hours contains over 200 folios, about half of which are full page illustrations.

It was painted sometime between 1412 and 1416 for Jean, Duc de Berry by the Limbourg brothers. They left it unfinished at their (and the Duke's) death in 1416, so it was finished by Jean Colombe between 1485-1489.


All of our reproductions are done on hand-processed paper, illuminated with gold paint and finished with beeswax, giving them a real parchment-like look. Actual colors may vary a bit due to different monitors displaying colors differently.

    In case your print creases during the travel, as it usually does travel for some time, you can safely warm it up with a hair-dryer, and the wax will melt back right into it. You can also use a lighter, which is a much faster method, but be careful to keep the flame either above the paper or parallel to it (which means holding the paper vertically) so it doesn't smudge or even catch fire. The chance of the print actually creasing is very small, as they are rolled in bubble-wrap and shipped in a cardboard box. Also, be sure to keep the print out of the direct sunlight, as it can melt or fade.
