I ordered a personalized version for my husband for his birthday. He loves books as much as wooden boats -- he will appreciate the theme of this bookplate as it connects his love of books, ships, travel and history. Well made and nicely packaged!

The items is exactly as described and pictured online. I ordered a personalized version for my husband, a book lover. Can't wait to give it to him for his birthday, as I imagine he'll be thrilled. Nicely packaged, too!

The idea for this shop came about after making a set of bookplates as a gift for one of my daughter's best friends. I loved every part of the process, from restoring the cracked and faded vintage image to seeing his delighted face upon opening the package.
