Book Description Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Limited Edition. This extraordinary three-volume set on the Sistine Chapel is the result of a five-year collaboration between Callaway, the Vatican Museums, and the Italian art publisher Scripta Maneant of Bologna, Italy. The publication of The Sistine Chapel trilogy is a pioneering technological breakthrough. To create the ultimate book of these masterpieces, a team of photographers made more than 270,000 digital images over the course of 67 consecutive nights, while the Sistine Chapel was closed to the public. Using a 33-foot-tall scaffold and rig to capture every inch of the chapel in gigapixel digital photography, the team utilized imaging software to stitch together seamlessly all 270,000 individual frames. The result is the first opportunity in history for viewers to appreciate the frescoes as Michelangelo and the other artists painted them, with images so clear, sharp, and immersive that the viewers feel as if they are side by side with the artist. This giant, 24x17 inch, 822-page magnum opus features state-of-the-art color accuracy and printing fidelity, color-matched against the actual frescoes, to produce a 1:1 life-scale rendering of masterworks by Michelangelo, Botticelli, Perugino, and other Renaissance artists as the world has never seen them. The worldwide publication is limited to 1,999 copies, with only 600 sets available in the English language for the world. The work will never be reprinted. A portion of proceeds from sales is given to the Vatican Museums. The Sistine Chapel is an art treasure for the ages, to acquire or to give as the heirloom of a lifetime.
