Books are not what they used to be anymore. At least not these very special books. Our new and independent publishing house is working on the reinvention of scrolls and goes back to the very beginning – when books were still round not square. With an outstanding format and thanks to newest printing technology we produce high quality publications with a wide variety on content, handmade in Berlin.
For art lovers and book addicts: a manufactory of scrolls.
