Among the current crop of presidential candidates I can think of only who can lead , and inspire this kind of confidence but I am not going to vote for him because he wants to continue the war that Bush got us into.

Bookplate designers have always sent collectors and clients beautiful Christmas cards and I would like to share some of my favorites with you. Dr. Bennett's card was designed by Rudolph Ruzicka (1883-1978)

Thomas Ewing French (1871-1944) often worked with A.N. Macdonald

William Hammatt Simmons (1884-1949)

Bernhardt Wall sent this card to the American ephemera collector Bella Landauer

The card shown above was done by Allen Lewis (1873-1957)
Timothy Cole (1852-1931) did the card below for Bella Landauer

Stanley E. Scantlin (1949- ) engraved the card below

See you next week.
