This lightly lined notebook features sixty full color vintage bookplates. Perfectly sized to toss in your bag for book group or to take to your favorite cafe, this journal is as appealing to the lover of ephemera and graphic design as it is to the lit lover. Bookplates featured include those of luminaries such as Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, Greta Garbo, Bing Crosby, Harry Houdini, Jacqueline Onassis, and Edith Wharton. A tipped-on bookplate on a cloth cover and a ribbon marker complete this bibliophile's dream notebook.


Editorial Reviews

Pen World:

"An intriguing new journal from Princeton Architectural Press is not just lovely--though it is, covered in deep olive with an intricate bookplate, ready for one's own imprint but framed with an elaborate illustration set against the elegant green background fabric. It also offers a visual tour through the fascinating history of bookplates; or, as the journal so states in its name, an ex libris. In these ex libris designs, echoes of the self grace the art; it's something special."

Fine Books & Collections:

"An excellent holiday gift for a book lover."
