     The history of books begins with many questions. The number of reliable answers is not sufficient. The original form of the book was immaterial and belonged to the oral TRADITION, so that the book’s deepest root is as old as the man of mastered experience and knowledge. When he decided to effectuate that experience and knowledge into a handicraft, to usher outside his internal world, he stepped into the area of creative power where knowledge and experience were supported by the artistic and aesthetic potential. Numerous cultures have endowed us with books of different content and form whose beauty we still marvel at today. At present we are surrounded by oceans of books and rarely have the opportunity to appreciate their true beauty as before.

     The ZEPTER MUSEUM, the MUSEUM OF BOOKS AND TRAVELS and the ARTISTS, inspired by the subject matter of the book, prove that in every moment and in various aspects, an artistically designed book is possible.
