Description

OEDB (greek: ΟΕΔΒ) stands for “Educational Books Publishing Organization” and was the only publisher of books used in Greek schools from 1937 to 2012. The logo OEDB was printed at the back of every schoolbook used in primary and secondary education, and a truly Greek image, presenting an owl, the classic Greek symbol for wisdom ("σοφία").  The Three Dots, a creative studio specializing in custom furniture and design items, have immortalized a logo connected with the Greeks’ childhood on the schooldesks, by creating the wooden bookend OEDB. 

The owl reminds us of schoolbooks, teachers, schoolmates and times of dreaming and aspiring,  everything connected to the early years of our lives.
A sentimental item, ideal gift for anyone who wants to take home an item kept in almost every Greek’s memory!
