I saw some fun “this book belongs to” bookplates by Sara Jensen on design*sponge this morning and ended up hunting down some other bookplate designs on etsy.

  1. Those book plates are quite nice, but I don’t know that I’d prefer them over a standard embosser. There’s something about a raised seal indicating that this book is mine.

  2. Oh! I really love the bookplates. Just yesterday, my youngest daughter told me how much she likes finding bookplates inside the books on our bookshelf (she thinks they are something that was put in books, only years ago!)
