Bookplates allow me to ceremoniously mark my treasured books as my own…(I will be the last reader standing with a paper book…).
I have books that I read and “pass on” and then I have books that I love to share, but want back. Putting a bookplate in them assigns them a certain status and may assist in them getting returned to me.
They are their own art form. I have many that speak volumes…different volumes…of whimsy, of reverence, of worlds far away, of sweetness and joy.
I haven’t met a bookplate I didn’t love.
