DAY EIGHT: 25 Days of New Designs

DAY EIGHT: We've been neglecting our equine best friends lately so for Day 8 of 25 Days of New Designs, I finished up several horse themed bookplates: Prancing Horse & Collie, Friendly Horses and Horse Portrait. Each is created from a vintage postcard image and carefully restored digitally. Bookplates date back to 15th century Germany and were often pasted into the inside cover of a book in order to identify its owner. Today, I'm happy to say bookplates are making a comeback. Check out our entire collection bookplate labels...they make a great accompaniment to gifts of books.
