The tradition of marking the ownership of one's books with a bookplate dates all the way back to the Middle Ages. Books were precious possessions then (as now), and those who loaned them out wanted them returned. "Ex Libris" (Also written "Ex-Libris") is a Latin phrase meaning "from the library of" or "from the books of".

These little bookplates feature some of my pen and ink growing seedling drawings. They were done in black & white only to allow you the freedom to print them on the colored paper of your choice, and affixed to the front of your books (Especially all those lovely gardening books!) with any favorite adhesive or paste. A little re-usable envelope and label is included to store your bookplates in and make gift giving a snap. Their small size (each plate measures 3 7/8" x 3") makes them a great mailable gift!

This set of 4 PDF pages comes complete with directions, envelope, envelope label & two different bookplates. The file will be available for immediate download once payment is confirmed.
