the art of reading

gifting

There is something so special about claiming right to your favorite written words.  I love picking up a book in a used book store to find a glimpse into a previous owner’s past.  A book plate can give you perspective on who once own the words you are about to read. The below beauties were created by oiseauxnoir, spotted on etsy. The labels make the sweetest delivery to any literary as a gift or perhaps a child that has just begun his library.  The illustrations come from vintage children’s books, although nostalgic I feel most designs could be adult worthy.  The first one is absolutely my favorite!  Oh to be back in Never Never Land again!
