Positioning the manuscript

Urs Baumann, our e-codices photographer, has been with us since the very beginning. The beautiful digitized pages of manuscripts are the result of his life-long experience at photography. He is responsible for digitizing around 1000 manuscripts containing over 370.000 pages. Isn`t that something?! When asked which was his favorite manuscript, he told us: "There was a manuscript about the history of the first Crusade with eerily beautiful illustrations".
