      "In 2007, Bookbinders Workshop discovered 128 original Cooper Square
      Gutenberg Bibles. Although these beautiful facsimiles were printed nearly 50
      years ago, they had never been bound and the untrimmed sheets were found in
      their original boxes. Drawing from solid historical precedence combined with
      sound principles of conservation, it was decided that the masterwork
      deserved a binding that was equally impressive as the printed text but must
      also be reflective of Gutenbergs era. Bookbinders Workshop invested over two
      years of research and development creating the authentic 15th-century-style
      binding shown here."
