    Ex libris collection, bookplate indicating ownership of a book, from Halisten Studio, 2015–2016.
Personalized ex libris collection №02

After our previous ex libris collection we had so many bookplate commissions, that now we are able to present the second selection. This makes us so happy, we really like to work on bookplates. It is a very personal and custom design each time, and a great challenge to express someone’s personality in one compressed symbol.
Our bookplates, also known as ex libris, are usually small prints or decorative labels pasted or stamped into a book, often on the inside front cover, to indicate its owner, and make the property look more unique. They usually consist of the owner's name or monogram, and a motif that can be related to the owner of the book, requested by the owner or by the designer.
