Bookplate Exchanges, Judaica Bookplates

I found the 2005 pie chart below fascinating.

If you accept my estimate that there are no more than than 200 bookplate collectors in the U.S and maybe 1,500 in the entire world you can see why it is challenging to find other collectors who are interested in exchanging Judaica bookplates. It is a niche within a niche

Having said that I recently sold three different Judaica bookplates on Ebay. One went to China,one to Poland and one to Russia. There are collectors of Judaica ExLibris scattered around the globe . I hope this listing of my duplicate Judaica bookplates will reach some of them
and that we can exchange duplicates.

I have been in touch with several more artists who worked at The Antioch Bookplate Company and they in turn have referred me to some of their former colleagues. Some scans have already arrived and others are forthcoming.I hope to post something about the Antioch artists in two to three weeks.See you next Sunday.
