Looking Back and Looking Forward


In 2014 I began a series of bookplate artists checklists . Of all the articles I've written this year they give me the most satisfaction . Few if any of the checklists are complete so these projects  with your help  and input are ongoing .

Looking Forward

The California Bookplate Project

I probably bit off more than I can chew with this project but with your help I will keep on trucking.
These are a few of the bookplate designers  I plan to write about in 2015 Some of the artists worked  in several locations throughout their careers but many collectors think of them as Californians..

Beulah Mitchell Clute
John A. Comstock
Mallette Dean
Anthony Euwer
Mac Harshberger
Anthony F. Kroll
Dorothy Payne
Charles J. Rider
Ruth T. Saunders
James E.Webb
Margaret Ely Webb 
Albertine R.Wheelan
Leota Woy

I really could use some help with this project.The bookplates of many of these artists   are at 
several California institutions and it does not make sense to reinvent the wheel.What I hope to find is   someone in California with whom I can collaborate.

If you have the time and enthusiasm please contact me.
