On the evening of Tuesday 16th January, we are thrilled to host an exclusive event with Linda and Michael Falter. They will be showcasing a selection of key pieces from their stunning collection of illuminated manuscript works of art.
Linda and Michael specialise in creating facsimiles of the most beautiful, rare and hard-to-reproduce works. Their passion for detail and accuracy is unparalleled in their field, and they have continuously pushed the boundaries in terms of detail, materials, authenticity, and intricacy. They will be explaining and demonstrating their work during the event at which you will have the opportunity to see their latest facsimiles, the 1945 Nobel Prize for the discovery of Penicillin and a new Haggadah that took over five years to create and two years to reproduce. They will be describing these works in detail, along with the rest of their collection created over the last 43 years.
The evening will include a drinks reception and a light supper. We hope to see you there!
About Linda and Michael Falter
Michael is the third generation of a family that has worked in the printing industry since the late 1800s, (his father gave him a printing press at the age of 12) and Linda worked for the United Nations in Geneva and Tehran before they launched their own company, Facsimile Editions, in 1980
Their very first facsimile, The Kennicott (Hebrew) Bible took five years to create and was one of the largest and most complex facsimiles ever published. In the ensuing years, they have continued pushing boundaries. Nowadays, their work consists almost exclusively of private commissions from leading museums, libraries and private collectors.
