The Kazakhstan born graphic artist Serik Kulmeshkenov is one of the few artists that keeps the ex Libris craft alive, a special genre within the arts. Ex Libris are special book seals people use to personify their person book collection. The works of Serik Kulmeshkenov are excellent examples of why this craft should never disappear:
Ex libris Natalya Chebotar / size 90mm x 90mm, 2005.
Ex libris Sergey and Irina Khrapov / size 80mm x 105mm, 2008
Ex libris Paul Elliott / size 65mm x 82mm, 2008.
These and many more magnificent Ex libris works you can view at the website of Serik Kulmeshkenov. Every serious book collector should have such an emblem, in my opinion.
