Personalized ex libris collection №04
The frame says something about Anna's family: she is the proud daughter of a wood carver in Florence, while the picture recalls the idea of steadiness, a value she strongly believe in. To express it, we used the latin phrase “gutta cavat lapidem” means “Dripping water hollows out stone, not through force but through persistence.”
Ex Libris for Jacopo & his entire Family ♥ The whale is the head of the family, accompanied by the strong and caring walrus. The two little ones represent the pair's two children.
Ex Libris for Warnaars who is proud of his heritage, hence the lion from their family's coat of arms and he enjoys to use his creativity in his work in the new media industry.
Mark is a writer and his ex libris isn't only made for personal use but he applies it in a limited artist's edition of his novel. His work has been interested in geometry, he also likes sci-fi and cosmic stuff therefore stars are warmly welcome in this black tesserract-padlock that at the same time contains an unsolvable task: opening it.
Anne Greeley loves art history, literature, and Mediterranean culture, embodied in the form of Ariadne, based on Giorgio di Chirico's interpretation.
This ex libris stands for a whole family, religion is a very important matter in their life. Colomer means dove and Flores means flowers. The old lemon tree is representing the family with 7 branches as the children, and 19 fruits as the grandchildren.
