motd.co: Ex Libris
I found an old bookplate by a relative of mine on the internet somewhere. There aren’t a whole lot of people with my last name, so I’ve always found it kind of fascinating to discover things about them. Sometime this spring I got bored and spent a few minutes making a crappy mspaint style version for myself, swiping the style down to the uncentered “LIBRIS” across the top. It’s not great, but it was fun to think about who this guy was and what it must have been like to choose this bookplate in the first place.
(P.S. Testing out uploading photos in text posts— pretty neat! Thanks, David!)
