Tradition of excellence
We guard stories, personal life experiences and assets of individual heritage, giving them a life of their own, because a book is an opportunity to remember the past, live the present and look towards the future, helping to spread a message of culture. Also because a D'ORO Collection book is a rare if not unique object, with its own intrinsic value.
We print and bind entirely handmade books of the highest quality, following the most ancient tradition of Italian craftsmanship. The cover of a D’ORO book is hand carved and subsequently covered with gold leaf, scrupulously following eighteen individual steps that lead to the finished product. We rely solely on the best craftsmen and the finest raw materials, from the leather to the paper, everything is created from products and processes of excellence, because excellence is our goal, our hallmark, and that of our products and our customers.
We publish books that narrate the lives of statesmen, presidents, popes, philosophers, famous artists and illustrious individuals of the past and present. We curate the following four editorial lines: Immortal Heroes, populated by Illustrious characters of ancient and present times, emperors and heads of state, individuals that history will hand down for centuries to come; Modern Heroes, dedicated to the Italians who make our country great, these are the golden Italians, managers and corporate heads who have succeeded in creating employment and well-being; Art Books, which are artistic products in their own right and not monographs; lastly there is the Bespoke line, unique books on commission, the quality of which makes them immortal.
In a digital age, in which the sheet of paper is slowly dying, D'ORO Collection creates works of art that are unique in their beauty and accuracy, which will stand the test of time, because excellence, unique artefacts and everlasting quality is what will remain of this world in a distant future. Hence the concept of D’ORO publishing house: drawing inspiration from the scribes of the Middle Ages in order to create books, at the publisher’s initiative or on commission (Bespoke books), which are entirely handcrafted and protected by gold plated covers. Painters, sculptors, engravers and binders all work together in what is truly a culture producing factory, situated in the heart of Rome, in via Appia Antica.
The book thus becomes a jewel, a tailor-made product. The D'ORO volumes are designed and created for those who believe culture to be immense and invaluable. D'ORO is the publishing house of three Popes and as many presidents of the United States. From England to Russia, from America to the Orient, the pages bound together by D'ORO Collection represent the boundaries of a unique and exclusive culture.
Printing, binding, engraving and producing extremely high quality books: this is the daily chore of D’ORO Collection publishing house, steered with passion and vigour by Dino Giorgio Salvatore. The publishing house is faithful to a tradition which began in 1955 and has only one objective: creating handcrafted books in accordance with the most ancient traditions of the Italian artisans, in order to produce something unique that can carry the message it contains throughout the times.
The emblem of the publishing house is the lion, which symbolically protects the cultural heritage of humanity. It is a lion that is conscious of its past and of traditions, and looks to the future without fear. History represents our origins and our future, and books are the mirror of the world.
Craftsmanship, passion and tradition. A cultural luxury. This is D’ORO.
