More than a plateful

It's a cosy world, this blogosphere, so I was delighted when contacted by Lewis Jaffe, from Philadelphia in the US, who'd found my post on bookplates.

Check out his blog, Confessions of a Bookplate Junkie, for some gorgeous examples. I particularly liked the turtle series, and the bookplates featuring scabies.

Children's book illustrators occasionally produce bookplates - including this one by one of our favourites, Colin Thompson.

This fabulous page from the Children's Bookshop has lots of free printable bookplates by favourite New Zealand illustrators, including Lynley Dodd, and David Elliott. One of my little fantasies would be to commission David Elliott to design a bookplate or two for me. One day...
