In 2015 Mereb started working in the publishing house Ex Libris with Javier Aizpurua.[3] Ex Libris has won the contest of 'Best Book design From all over the World' (Leipzig, Germany) on three occasions.

In base of a comprehensive research focusing in the poetic work of the Venezuelan writer Miyó Vestrini, Mereb assembled and designed two books, Es una buena máquina ~ Miyó Vestrini and Al Filo ~ Miyó Vestrini in which she explored literary interviews and unpublished poems of Vestrini.[1][3][4] Es una buena máquina was selected in the Ibero American Design Biennial of Madrid and in the Feria Iberoamericana de Arte (FIA) of 2015.

In 2014, she co-founded Ediciones Letra Muerta, a publishing house dedicated to cover relevant Venezuelan authors like Vestrini and Ida Gramcko, among others.[1][4]

With Letra Muerta, Mereb published Poemas ~ Ida Gramcko in 2016.[5] This work was pre-selected in contest 'Best Book design From all over the World' (Leipzig, Germany).[6]
