New Bookplate by Daniel Mitsui

On Sunday I will write about the bookplates of Magicians so be sure to tune in.
Daniel Mitsui just completed this bookplate for a client.

The words along the edges are select verses from the famous Jewish Prayer Shema Yisrael, Hear Oh Israel. The 4 letters on the 4 corners are the 4 letters traditionally placed on the 4 sides of a dreidel, which stand for Nes Gadol Haya Po, a great miracle happened here.

See you on Sunday.

Maybe it's just because I cut so many Hebrew school classes, but how can there be "selected verses" from what I always thought was an eleven-word prayer?
