If there is one animal that has always embodied a close relationship between man and nature, an almost mystical and ancestral symbiosis, it is certainly the horse. Over the years, these animals have always been protagonists of history and literature, close to the pen of great writers and the deeds of emperors and kings. This is how the idea of devoting a volume to the horse and its relationship with man throughout history came about. This edition deals with the different breeds from a scientific, historical, legendary and artistic point of view. The Golden Horses published by D'ORO Collection is entirely handmade on 220-gram thick handmade paper. Each page is sewn by master craftsmen using wooden frames of the type used in the Middle Ages. The covers are made of red leather lined with silk and printed with gilded figures of galloping horses. Two bronze reliefs, gilded by immersion in a 24 Kt gold bath, form the front and back covers.

Since 2020, in the heart of Rome, D'ORO Collection craftsmen have been printing and binding books entirely by hand using the finest leathers, papers and silks, and hand-crafting bas-relief covers finished in gold leaf. Made using ancient craft methods, these books become jewels destined to preserve history, tradition and excellence for future generations.
