The world of ex-libris has fascinated me for a lot of years. I
have started collecting them by chance, keeping the leaflets, given
by the late Professor Ernesto Guffanti, artist and collector, with
Eventually, my passion has increased, and I later personally made a number of etchings.
Since my most important hobbies and interests are publishing and the communication, the step towards the foundation of a Publishing House, which deals with ex libris, has been relatively short.
The book production was intended to be divided into two collections:
books on ex-libris and books of poetry, both with original prints.
Unfortunately, it was just too much to handle. 'Artifex' now publishes books on the subject of ex-libris but no longer is interested in poetry.
Artifex also publishes 'Block Notes',
the on-line bulletin devoted to the ex-libris and other publishing
houses' books, which is experiencing a nice success.
Who knows, maybe one day we'll provide a paper edition...!
I wish you a good navigation.
