Ex-Libris is a Latin term for an artistic vignette glued inside a book. In Europe, the ex-libris became very popular with the birth of printmaking. This vignette took the form of a print mentioning the name of the owner of the book.
With this title, members question the theme of the book, its multiple forms and its many links with the printed arts. Dictionary, novel, essay, zine, poetry compilation, comic book are all examples of sources that can be applied to a wide spectrum of artistic practices.
The book can also be interpreted as a printed object. The cover, the format, the pages, the typography, the binding are all material aspects that can feed formal research and be integrated into your display.
