The Squirrel Liberation Army

I found the Squirrel image at
It seems that many of you are putting out bird feeders then surrounding them with barbed wire, and claymore mines to prevent the Squirrels from sharing with the birds . Squirrels have had it . They are well organized and their training camps are scattered around the nation. Be advised, the next time you put lard on the feeder pole retaliation will be swift.
It was my intention to put a few Squirrel bookplates on but I kept finding other bookplates that either amused or intrigued me so here they are.

John Harwood Evans' plate amused me.

Fetch the book piggy -Another one to put a smile on your face. The bookplate was engraved by William Fowler Hopson

The two faces of John Mull . Was he a deep thinker or a dirty old man?

This one was designed to be looked at straight up or upside down. Can any of you translate the Japanese ?

John J. Kincaid owned a restaurant in Baltimore.

Mary Wallingford Dame used all sorts of symbolism in her plate.Chances are we will never learn what she had in mind.

I attended a library book sale and found this bookplate dated 1910 .It was designed by Taplin. Are any of you familiar with the artist ?


Several months ago I wrote about watch papers. If you follow the link above you will see some wonderful examples.

That's all for now. See you next week.
