The Gutenberg Bible was printed in Mainz between 1452 and 1454. Today, around 3,500,000 Bibles and hymn books are produced in Nördlingen per year for demanding clients. Our printing house is first choice for realising newly designed editions, which is why we were trusted with the printing of the ‘Luther Bible’, an edition that marked the 500th anniversary of The Reformation. Thanks to our extensive experience, we possess a proficiency in both printing on bible paper as light as 22g and the delicate process of binding.
