Ex Libris – The Art Of the Bookplate

“A Book Is A New Adventure” – bookplate

I own quite a few books and, despite my indecisiveness, I’ll eventually get around to designing something for them. I also found a book on the subject of bookplates, which included plenty of beautiful examples from the libraries of both famous and not-so-famous persons. These days one can find entire blogs and websites entirely devoted to bookplates, so I won’t attempt to go on too much about them. I just thought I’d raise the subject because of a passing interest in them and thought perhaps others in the typosphere had an interest as well.

So does anyone out there have a collection of books for which you’ve had bookplates designed? Perhaps you’ve designed your own bookplates?
