COW EX LIBRIS, THE NEW MUMU PERMANENT COLLECTION.

MUMU boasts a new permanent collection: Cow Ex Libris, which makes it ever more original and unique. 
Thanks to the Ing. Giuseppe Prudents, perhaps the greatest ex-libris collector in the world, MUMU can boast a new and curious Permanent Collection: Cow Ex Libris. It’s a question of a collection of numerous ex-libris which have been printed with the effigy of a cow and her nearest relatives. But what is un ex libris ?  It is an artistic xylography conceived with the object of personalising the ownership of a book with a decorum thus making robbery more difficult. This practice started in Germany, home of printing, where the techniques of xylography developed quite extraordinarily. The oldest ex-libris dates to the years 1470-1480 and belonged to the chaplain Hans Jgler. With ‘art nouveau’ collecting developed on an international level to the extent that the ex-libris finished by being commissioned as works of art in their own right.
