This hat is priceless! If I were any good on the old photoshop, I would no doubt raid some flickr galleries of old bookplates and re-invent my own. So very pretty.
Do you stamp your own books? Mouse purchased a lovely book stamp a while ago and I also quite like this one, but can't (yet) actually deface my books with one. Because what if I changed my phone number? Would you stamp your email, instead? Gah! And what if I wanted to give the book away?
Let's be honest: I am actually not a lender of books. I am so ridiculously careful with how I look after mine that I get a bit antsy at the thought that someone else might not take good care of my little ones. So therefore bookplates or stamps are sort of a moot point, aren't they?! However, my favourite bookplates are on etsy (unsurprisingly!) at Oiseaux. They are so pretty and would make perfect presents.
