Unique replicas of historical medieval illustrations and typefaces

Shop museum replicas historically accurate and exclusively designed. Explore the uniquely beautiful collection of high-quality gifts.

Scriptorium.dk is a small artist firm that recreates and reproduces historic, illustrated handicraft. All of the products are made by the owner and graphic designer Søren Bie, from his idea that historical illustrations don’t just have to be enjoyed and experienced in books, in museums and through digital media, but also as copy-art which can bring joy and be owned by many.

All of the pieces are made in my own studio and are made from handmade high quality materials. Every piece is either unique or made in very small numbers. Every artwork is carefully chosen and is an authentic, historical and handmade copy.

As far as I know, there are no others that work with this and nowhere else can you achieve these artworks in such a high unique quality.

Scriptorium reconstructs, among other things, illustrated medieval scripts, miniature books, with great detailed beauty in high artistic quality. Recreated, utilizing both the original and my own special techniques, make the artworks look like several hundred years old medieval illustrations.

All the pieces are unique, handcrafted and Danish artworks, which are rarely found anywhere else.
