|Christmas card by Donn P.Crane|
Several weeks ago I wrote about Guthrie Y Barber's bookplate by D.P. Crane .
A few days ago, to my delight and surprise I received an Email from the artist's grand daughter, Ann B.Crane.
How thoughtful of her to contact me . She took the time to send bookplate scans along with some very useful links.
Her grandfather's full name is Donn Philip Crane
Here are some of the bookplates he designed.
|The Artist's Bookplate|
|His Son's bookplate|
|His sister Bessie's Bookplate|
His Daughter Betty's Bookplate
|Guthrie Y. Barber was a family friend,|
The next two plates are from Crane's brother in law's family
