I am happy and pleased to have met the publishing house and the printing house of Monitorul Oficial, which, since 1970, have given me the opportunity to boast several outstanding achievements thanks to their printing excellence. Practically, I owe a large part of my achievements in the field of book production to this wonderful team. I cannot fail to mention the rare editions, the bibliophile editions, produced together with some of my students, which are the pride of libraries in Germany, Finland, the Romanian Academy and Moscow and which have won prizes at international fairs in Leipzig, Frankfurt, Bucharest, Bologna, Budapest and Cluj. Let me mention some of them: editions of books by Ion Heliade Rădulescu, Victor Hugo, Lamartine, Ady Endre, Eminescu’s sonnets etc., which were exhibited at the Paris Book Fair in 2000, the bicentenary of Ion Heliade Rădulescu. My artistic volumes have also benefited from Monitorul Oficial’s mastery. I must also take some pride in the performance of printing the 38 volumes representing the entirety of Eminescu’s manuscripts, thus accomplishing a dream nourished by Romanian writers. On this occasion, all the publishing professionals involved in producing these volumes in an exceptional typographic format were specified in the colophon. They are now the pride of home, as well as foreign libraries, and encourage further research of Eminescu’s work. The original manuscripts, extremely crumbly, are stored at the Library of the Romanian Academy. To conclude, Monitorul Oficial Publishing House, as well as its press, is part of my life, and I would like to express my wish that, even after I am no longer here, considering that I am already in my old age, it will be the same united and highly performing team, with a management intent on printing the spiritual values of our nation. Happy birthday!
