Task: to share rare and valuable editions.

Bibliotekus is the personal library of Artemy Lebedev. It’s a whole website that contains a vast collection of scanned books on typefaces and calligraphy from different countries and time periods. With materials ranging from old publications of the 19th century to the modern editions, the website is a huge archive of valuable information. Bibliotekus is a real treasure trove for typographers and designers, as well as a historical encyclopedia for a wide range of interested readers.

The timeline at the top of the page shows the full range of dates and helps filter the results by a specific time period.

212 books scanned in excellent quality, preserving all details.

A preview of all spreads and bookmarks is available for each book. Users can add the books they liked to their Favorites list.

To make reading comfortable, pages are opened in spreads. They are easy to flip through, and a preview of the next and previous pages is shown at the bottom. Any page can be bookmarked so that the exact place can be easily found again later.

If any of the books on the website violate copyright, they will be immediately removed.
