2013 will be the start of my seventh year as a blogger. I am pleasantly surprised at my continued output.
Here are a few of the things planned for next year.
An expanded article on Arnold A. Robert with many previously unpublished illustrations.
A contest about The most humorous bookplate in your collection.
I previously had a bizarre bookplate contest back in 2007
More Collector Profiles.
For this to happen I need your help. All you need to do to participate is to send me a paragraph or two about yourself and your collection.If English is not your primary language I will assist you with the editing.
Take the first step and contact me.
An article about bookplates with microscopes

Happy New Year
