Książki, to nasza pasja. Historia, to miłość. Zabytki techniki, to fascynacja.

W 2013 roku postanowiliśmy robić coś więcej dla zabytków techniki. Aktywnie włączyliśmy się w proces renowacji najstarszego czołgu w polskiej kolekcji muzealnej – Renault FT-17.

Dzisiaj w miarę posiadanego czasu staramy się wspierać muzea by jak najszerzej krzewić myśl techniczną i historię jako taką.

Spotkać nas można w Muzeum Polskiej Techniki Wojskowej (oddział Muzeum Wojska Polskiego).

Prowadząc księgarnia historyczną Grzbiet.pl postanowiliśmy, aby cześć dochodów z tej działalności przeznaczać na wsparcie konserwacji i renowacji zabytków techniki będących w Polskich muzeach.
