- About this book
- Extra (1)
The title of the miscellany "Ex libris... ne pereant" – a collection inspired by the love for ancient books - constitutes not only the key to approach the numerous contributions, but also an invitation to honor the commitment to acknowledge the value of written communication. A question animates this journey through the forms and events that see the book as a protagonist: in the current age of “digital humanism”, can paper volumes set in motion a new cultural “renaissance”? The quest for the answer takes the reader on an exploration of archives and libraries, the mechanisms of printing machines, and ideal dialogues with writers and manuscripts.
