The ex-libris of Greta Garbo

Calculate how much would a book with this ex-libris, Greta Garbo.

I found the illustration in an article on the ex-libris of Hollywood artists, the blog Confessions of a Bookplate Junkie.

  • Still do not know what an ex-libris?

What is more remarkable is that, normally, ex-libris are crammed with symbolism, and some earn an appearance somewhat heavy to express all the meanings that the owner expects to print the book in his book.

Therefore, the ex-libris would be an expression of the personality of its owner. A brand.

I wonder how many can afford to have an impression so simple and, at the same time as significant as the stylized profile of Garbo, certainly one of the most striking faces of the last century.
