Searching for visual gold

We are heritage adventurers deeply connected with our visual past. Reimagining visual gold long forgotten. We want to bring back life to old imageries found in rare books and hidden in galleries, archives, libraries and museums.

Founded 2013 by Henrik Dybdahl a collector, visual artist, and master of library and information science (MLISc). Through the last years THE DYBDAHL CO. have been exploring more different visual concepts.

The image above is from the Kunstformen der Natur by Ernst Haeckel. We found the original rare book hidden in a antique store in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. We carefully browse through the images and digitize as many as we can so we can use them in our attempt to bring back life to the visual heritage.
