Every month the librarian owners of Spazio B**K propose one hundred new titles, of which three are reviewed extensively. Every month, CIRCI acquires the best of the selection to augment the collection at the Biblioteca nazionale Braidense.

A selection that brings together albums and illustrated books for children and adults, card games, essays and manuals, mixing selfpublishing, small independents and big publishers from the Italian, French, Spanish and Anglo-American markets. In collaboration with museum consultant Devorah Block, they propose and review three titleseach month. At the same time, CIRCI acquires the best of the proposed selection, enriching its collection at the Bibilioteca Braidense.
