In Which I Make Bookplates

July 7, 2007 at 9:51 am 4 comments

Friday night, I spent a romantic evening making bookplates. I think I’d like to go back and make a few more in color, just for the fun of it. You print them on Avery labels so that they’re ready to peel and go – and you can print as many as you need, which is a big deal when you have a huge personal library, but bookplates-to-purchase come in dinky little six-packs.

Which do you like the best? My husband and I are rather fond of the second one.






The text on that last one is a medieval curse against book thieves.

    I love the look of the “don’t steal” and the creativity of your flying books. But for actually getting my books back from my friends, I have faith in a curse of “blasted Members” and bookworms gnawing on entrails. LOL! You did a beautiful job on that bookplate.

    Thanks for the link to my old paper on book curses. Cheers!
