Test printing for my new book on the Italian Chapel in Prague

Lytomsyl (Czech Republic): On the 9th of June 2018 I performed the test print of my new book "La Cappella degli Italiani in Praga" which will be be available very soon. Quality for me is everything and for the printing I choose what I call the Formula One of printing: HRG in Czech Republic. Quality is not just about having the best equipment, but it is especially having people that support you through the production of your book and help you to make the right choices. Here with Robert Vanicek in Litomysl fine tuning the book.
