Il Bulino Publishers, founded in 1980, has its seat in Modena, a historically important town. Il Bulino has a leading position in the cultural life of the community, due to its side by side work with the Biblioteca Estense Universitaria (the ancient Dukes' library) in making the most of its extremely important book heritage.
In our editions, the themes of medieval, Renaissance and modern culture live on, especially through the symbiosis between written word and image.
In this regard, libraries and archives are really inexhaustible sources for our projects.
Our production is basically divided into two collections, two different ways of talking about the history of books
· ARS ILLUMINANDI • facsimile editions
We reproduce, absolutely faithfully to the original, old manuscript masterpieces, and we offer them to our customers as precious jewels for their collections; yet, our facsimiles are always accompanied by the proper scientific instruments for a profound knowledge of the original codices.
· IL GIARDINO DELLE ESPERIDI • art books
L'analisi storico-critica delle diverse tematiche attraverso il connubio tra saggi di ricerca e illustrazioni, che dà vita a volumi di qualità, belli e utili a un tempo.
To complete the series of our collections:
· Civiltà Mantovana, six-month cultural review.
· I Tesori delle Biblioteche Italiane, digital hi-res books on CD-rom to virtually turn over the pages of the ancient masterpieces.
