Underlying the ItalicArtBook logo is a handful of art lovers with preferences for author graphics and for "beautiful books inside and out"

as Italian excellence teaches. It is known, in fact, that in Italy

the beautiful printed book was consolidated already in the last decades of the fifteenth century and with Aldo Manuzio it reached an apex both aesthetic and content of very rare quality. The history of the book leads us to think that Italy has always been at the forefront for a production of the highest level, reaching peaks even at the end of the eighteenth century with the catalog of Giambattista Bodoni and the wide range of its very elegant typefaces.

The tradition has been handed down and even today there are those in Italy who print manually and dedicate themselves with passion to the artist's book, intended as a fusion of words and images, in a unison in which inspired and precious pages stand out because of their intrinsic report.

It therefore seemed important to the organizers of ItalicArtBook to dedicate a space to the Italian excellences of the manual printing book, whether they are poets and writers of sifting married with artists also of the burin and gouge who know how to interpret them, as long as they give fruits of rare value and quality. .
