7. Bibliophile Books and Artist's Books

Such books that cannot be included in ordinary book production:

  • Bibliophile books – publications that possess unique quality of art, typography and book-binding procedures (individual calligraphy, often more expensive than hand-made paper, specific graphic technique, bookbinding that draws inspiration from Renaissance and Baroque  craftsmen’s techniques), and usually higher literary aspirations, published in very low number of copies, which are numbered and signed.
  • Author’s book – mostly a piece by one author, which comes either in one copy or hundreds, and includes other materials, such as stone, metal, wood, textile or glass besides paper.
