ESTABLISHED TO SHARE BEAUTIFUL PRINTS FROM THE PAST
We live in a world of millions of images, most of them new and razor sharp.
There was a time when images illustrated all that which we had no clue about: new inventions, unknown species and breathtaking explorations. Back then, dictionaries were as important as the whole of the internet - a staggering thought. Images were often coloured by hand, which gave them a very particular character and beauty.
We are driven by a strong passion for these unique images. We dig in forgotten archives, private collections and museums in Sweden and around the world - always on the hunt for new exciting images and captivating stories.
Browse through our carefully selected collections and find those images that can make your home feel more personal and original!
Each image is a copy of the original, without compromising on quality, colour balance or even spots. We call it Facsimile - this beautiful word comes from the Latin fac simile ("make alike", "depict").
Through our unique partnerships we will keep surprising you with hundreds of new facsimile prints.
Let us know if you are working on an interior design project and are searching for any specific themes/motifs. We know where to look and no project is too big or too small!
Many thanks to our friends at the Stockholm City Planning Committee Archives, the Swedish National Archives, Max Ström Publishing, Stockholms Auktionsverk et al.
