Ex Libris
Motives: deck chairs
“Ex Libris” is Latin for “from the books of” or – to be less literal – “from the library of”. When, with the invention of letterpress printing, books became mass-produced items, the ex libris book plate was born. Anyone with enough sense of importance had small editions of these labels artfully designed, affixing them to the first page of their books as a distinctive mark of possession. Make each of your books unique with an ex libris plate and your signature! Each pack contains 10 labels. Format: 9 x 6,5 cmLanguage: German
