Ex-libris, as a form of art, has been produced not only by classical print methods but also by new techniques with the acceleration of technology. Throughout its existence, there have been various designs in different contexts. Just as music, nature and women, space is also a subject of
ex-libris from the creative aspect of an ex-libris artist. Today, however, the boundaries have been pushed and it is well-known how tiny our solar system is in the universe. We can now explore vast distances and comprehend our distance to the other galaxies, the size of our universe and what our galaxy looks like. In this study, how “space”, or in other words, how “the cosmos”, which consists of all the matter and forms of energy in space, has been addressed in the art of ex-libris is studied.
