Editorial ReviewsPen World:
"An intriguing new journal from Princeton Architectural Press is not just lovely--though it is, covered in deep olive with an intricate bookplate, ready for one's own imprint but framed with an elaborate illustration set against the elegant green background fabric. It also offers a visual tour through the fascinating history of bookplates; or, as the journal so states in its name, an ex libris. In these ex libris designs, echoes of the self grace the art; it's something special."Fine Books & Collections:
"An excellent holiday gift for a book lover."
