The image shown above is a 1908 pencil signed proof by Frederick Spenceley. I plan to put it on Ebay before the day is over. I actually put ten items on Ebay. If you go there my seller name is bookplatemaven. WWW.ebay.com
The American Bookbinders museum has a website with many images of bookbinders labels.The one shown above is my favorite.
Mary was reading Tales From The Time Loop
last week and she showed me the floral illustration shown above. Can you see the subliminal message in the image ?
Apparently only 5% of people see it immediately. I could not find it until it was shown to me.
I got back from Papermania late Saturday night and was really dragging my butt on Sunday. I am a day late and definitely a dollar short. The show was very productive. I purchased the plate shown above because it also has an optical illusion. Sometimes you see the owner's name and sometimes you don't.
By the end of the week I plan to be in San Francisco.If you know of any great bookstores in the bay area please contact me . Bookplatemaven@hotmail.com
Next week I plan to write about bookplates from the Hollywood compost pile.
