The rooms of the Medieval Museum in Bologna house the exhibition Tullio Pericoli. Un libro fatto a mano “Storie della mia matita" which is the story of a book construction, Pericoli’s  “Storie della mia matita" published in 575 numbered copies by Edizioni Henry Beyle.
The exhibit is a kind of poetic anatomy tracing the different working steps of the precious book creation, for which traditional methods and very rare tools and techniques have been used. In effect, the book is composed with monotype Garamond characters and printed with a cylinder-printing machine on Gmund, Hahnemülhe and Lana paper. A box containing 60 author‘s pencil and charcoal-pencil printed drawings is attached to the book.

On show, lead plates, clichés, the different book covers, some original drawings and printing tests. By the same author also some unpublished works concerning the pencil theme.
