" The idea of Light Book arose some years ago. Since I was a child, I had always been surrounded and fascinated by books, because they could absorb me into another world. There are always laying some books next to me when I fall asleep or on my night table. A book is a strong, silent presence that invites you to open it to discover the mysteries inside... What then is more beautiful than a light in the dark coming from a door which opens on the Realm of Dreams?...That is how arose the idea of making a Light Book. I wanted to bring light into the books and to attract people to look inside... "
