Friday’s Library Snapshot

October 18, 2013

Since I have ‘become’ a print maker I would like to make a bookplate even only for own use.  So during my lunch break yesterday I found some nice examples and some ideas that I can play with.

I was surprised to find such a range of style and subject; produced by wood cut, lino cut, metal engraving, etching, lithography, decorative typography, aquatint and now modern forms of digital reproduction.

They are fine works of art on a small scale.
