Bookplate created for my wife’s personal library

OBJECTIVE       As a birthday present for my wife, I wanted to create a bookplate for her to use in marking the books in her library. The objective was to create a scene which evoked the same sense of mystery and wonder that is experienced when diving into a good book.
SOLUTION         Inspiration for the design was pulled from old bookplates of the early 1900’s. Likewise, the artwork and lettering was rendered in pen and ink, in much the same way that those early bookplates were drawn. The final artwork was then sent off to create a rubber stamp.
