This set of Ex Libris bookplates is the perfect any-time gift for all bibliophiles! We all love books, but we also love to get them back after we loan them out to a friend. Now when you loan out your favourite books, these labels will serve as a handy reminder as to where they belong... Simply add your name in ball-point pen beneath the printed Ex Libris text, to personalise - or leave unwritten: the choice is yours.
Keep a set of bookplates on hand and include one as a thoughtful extra when gifting a book, on any occasion. You can also use them in notebooks or journals or any other way you please!
These elegant labels feature designs reproduced from my original postage stamp collage artwork, laid against a vintage-style, aged paper background. The collages are inherently full of history, character and colour, appealing to book lovers of all ages, from travellers to letter-writers to stamp collectors and to all manner of quirky individuals!
This listing is for a set of 'Spring Shadows' (features stamps in shades of deepening blue over shadowy, mossy greens & browns). Unfortunately, mixed sets are now sold out, but please see my other listings for remaining single-design options: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TangleCrafts/search?search_query=ex+libris
The labels are professionally printed on high quality, easy-peel matt crack-back 170gsm sticker paper. Although the paper is described as matt, this just means it is not glossy. It still has a slight sheen to it and is much heavier stock than standard label paper. However, it can easily be written on with a ballpoint pen.
***PLEASE NOTE: Listing is for Ex Libris labels only. Books not included!***
