The oldest book is dated 1822, is entitled Della sovereignty and bears the signature of the French clergyman, writer and orator Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet, tutor of the French dauphin Louis.
The most recent volume is Fiordiluna by the surprising, and hitherto unpublished in Italy, German illustrator Einar Turkowski, who uses only HB mines to create poetic and visionary universes that blend poetry and fairy tale.
