BOOKPLATES

Help your treasured books return safely home--use bookplates.

The plates are adhesive-backed;  just write your name in the space provided, then peel and stick inside the front cover or on the flyleaf of your books. 

The bookplates are about 5cm x 8cm (2" x 3") and come in a pack of  24 for $10.   We can even print your name on them for a small charge!  Any of the designs for cards or T-shirts may be used as a bookplate;  below are some which are particularly suitable.  (These may be used on cards or T-shirts as well, with the name area removed.)  

Some people have asked why most of the images below feature saints or apostles.  The answer is simple:   these were the people most likely to be painted holding a book or writing in one, since the level of literacy was far lower in medieval times than it is now.
