bookplates... for you!



Let's have a 'my blog readers appreciation day' and celebrate it with a set of 'free for you' bookplates! Why not?:)

There are so many things you could do with these. Give them to your kid's teachers, add them to loot-bags, use them as a bookmark....etc.,

I use them in my ever-growing collection of unique and interesting vintage books.

To copy: click on the image - it will open up in its own window at a high resolution (300dpi-true size). Copy that to your desktop and feel free to use:) You could make them smaller if you'd like.

How fantastic - thankyou for sharing these - I am a huge fan of your work, Im currently in the process of trying to create some pattern and illustration work myself and you are a huge inspiration - think Ive got a long way to go before I can create lovely things like this though!

Amber said...

Thank you so much :) I love your work and these will be so cute in my daughters books.

Reg said...

Thank you for sharing! I'm a fan of your work :) I'll print these out on sticker paper and stick it on my stuff... not just on books! (I'll change the word "book" to "printer", "wall", "tablet", "shelf"... LOL :)

Thanks! :)

Gosh - are you doing all of that detailing with the pen tool?! Ouch. My wrists wouldn't let me get away with that. And all of the borders are different! I know they're mirrored, but still...

Very groovy and fun.

A bookplate is a sticky label-type thing that you stick in your book, if you want the book signed, but a) can’t make it to a signing appearance, b) don’t want to order a new signed book (if you do want to order a signed book.
