Bookplate Progress

{click image to enlarge}

For months, in spare moments between everything else, I have been working on a new personalized bookplate design. After two false starts, where the end product didn't live up to what I saw in my head, I finally have a version I'm happy with. Last night, I began printing the third color (brown). In the morning light, I'm pleased with the results. I will soon have them up on the website and ready to be ordered. They will be diecut into circles, and the area below the green "EX LIBRIS" is where the person's name goes, in blue ink using my "Liberty" vintage type. There are matching beaded bookmarks, too, and circular tins to complete the package... coming very, very soon!


  1. Oh my, Christy, these bookplates, they are too good for words! Your work blows me away every time. I really don't know how you do it. It always looks perfect!

  2. That's sweet of you to say. Thank you!

  3. Christy, These bookplates are outstanding! Beautifully designed and elegant. I will have to put my order in for these too!
