Creative writing requires long blocks of time in a comfortable posture for typing; conditions which don’t exist for me, at present, because illness has taken its toll on a multitude of abilities we take for granted when we’re well. To save my sanity while recuperating, I’ve been engaged in creative “occupational therapy,” done in short bursts. Here are the results: The Bookplate Book, Volumes 1 & 2.
If you love paper books, you need The Bookplate Book.
- Affixing bookplates to books has been a time-honored tradition for at least five centuries.
- What more attractive way is there to help the books we lend come back home?
- A bookplate is a fine finishing touch to any gift book, when inscribed with the recipient’s name.
Each volume of The Bookplate Book is a cut-and-paste project suitable for ages 12 through adult (complete instructions are included).
