Setalux® cover for the precious frescoes of the Sistine Chapel
Frescoes of the Sistine Chapel in life-scale 1:1
Callaway is proud to present this extraordinary three-volume, set on the Sistine Chapel, the result of a five-year collaboration between Callaway, the Vatican Museums, and the Italian art publisher Scripta Maneant of Bologna, Italy.
This special edition has been covered by our Setalux® white, offset printed with high quality results.
This giant, 24×17 inch, 822-page magnum opus features state-of-the-art color accuracy and printing fidelity, color-matched against the actual frescoes, to produce a 1:1 life-scale rendition of masterworks by Michelangelo, Botticelli, Perugino, and other Renaissance artists as the world has never seen them.
This monumental project dovetails with the ongoing conservation program of the Vatican Museums, who have never authorized a publication of this kind.
It creates a state-of-the-art permanent archive through the most advanced digital technology. The worldwide publication is limited to 1,999 copies, with only 600 sets available in English language for the world. The work will never be reprinted.
A portion of proceeds from sales is given to the Vatican Museums.
