Who sells prints of Hildegard of Bingen's art?
September 1, 2010 8:47 PM   Subscribe

Please help me find prints or posters of illuminations by Hildegard of Bingen.

The best possible find would be an online seller with giclee prints of illuminations by Hildegard of Bingen, but posters would be fine too.

Some examples of the illuminations are here, along with tantalizing leads for sources... but I'm still not getting anywhere. Readers & speakers of German, any help?

The library of Ruprecht-Karls-Universität in Heidelberg has high-quality scans of the Liber Scivias (with illuminations by Hildegard of Bingen) available. The price varies depending on the quality you want. A full-blown 20MP file will run you ~€50/page. Standard 6MP quality would be 12€/page. Here's their digital reproduction price guide.

Here's the contact form. And the order form.

So anyway you could get scans of the pages you want and then order prints.

Some of the images in the first 2 rows of this google search shows some images that are large enough to make decent prints from.
