Earlier this year I read an article in the Wall Street Journal about the personalized bookplate business of Antioch Publishing having been sold to Bookplate Ink
While in Washington last week I met Karen Gardner the firms owner and I am very impressed with the quality and reasonable pricing of this firms bookplates. Now is the time to think about getting yourself and your friends an affordable Christmas present that will be used for many years to come.
