It's my textbooks that I need my bookplates for. I bring them to class, they get left here - used there - passed around....and then in the end, no one knows whose book is whose, and someone possibly walks out with ones (very expensive) textbook. So, I thought some lovely bookplates would be better then just scrawling my name on them. It also makes boring books seem a tad cuter, which is always a plus!
I've always been a huge fan of tutlepapers work. These bookplates are so lovely, and the paper chosen is gorgeous (I love kraft paper pieces!). They are very classy and elegant bookplates.
Theblackapple is a wonderful artist who I've admired since coming to Etsy, but I never knew what to get from her - I didn't know where I would put one of her prints, and I didn't want to give her postcards away hehe. But, I've just ordered some of her bookplates for my textbooks, so soon I will own one of her pieces! (15 to be exact!). They'll look perfect in my textbooks and spruce them up!
I love this bookplate! I came across it in my search, and who doesn't like cute humor? If I found a book with this bookplate in it, it would make me chuckle and make my day. Please, if someone near where I live is reading this...buy this bookplate and loose your book, so that I can find it and see. Please.
There are so many more lovely bookplates on Etsy - so many to choose from! Go out there, find ones that suit you, and give your books some love!
