vintage bookplate

A little more from the vintage paper fair:

This bookplate is from 1925. It's a lovely block print mounted on a thick matte paper. It struck me as being both dark and beautiful.


  1. This reminds me of the graveyard in santa clara for some reason.. huh very strange, but i love it!

  2. love this blockprint...i'm attracted to things that are simultaneously beautiful and dark. i love that tension.

    by the way, thanks for your means a lot to me, especially coming from a writer like yourself!
