In this section we provide you with various information that will be useful to evolve your collections. Anecdotes and other experiences will facilitate their search paths and allow a better classification of their sets.
You will find suggested books for reading and a selection of Reference Libraries, grouped by topic to collect. In the pages of the indicated titles you will have a source of information of enormous value.
In addition, we are making progress in the production of various articles with short essays and some reports to prominent collectors. We believe that these testimonials can inspire new paths, and we trust that you will be an excellent recipient of this initiative.
If you are an experienced collector, you know that a good reference library is the ideal tool. Finding out about the works you own and those you want, gives you the necessary perspective so as not to make mistakes in your decisions, and above all, it will give you the additional pleasure of enjoying yours with intensity.
