Ex Libris

I love books, I love bookstores, I love to walk around in an antiques bookstore, I LOVE old books! My newest collection ‘Ex Libris’ is all about books, reading and libraries.

‘Ex Libris’ is Latin for “from the books of…”. Usually it is a small print or decorative label pasted into a book, often on the inside front cover, to indicate its owner. Bookplates typically bear a name, motto, device, coat-of-arms, crest, badge, or any motif that relates to the owner of the book, or is requested by him from the artist or designer. The name of the owner usually follows an inscription such as “from the books of…” or “from the library of…”, or in Latin, ex libris…. Bookplates are important evidence for the provenance of books. In the United States, bookplates replaced book rhymes after the 19th century. – Source: Wikipedia

Do you love escaping in a book? Do you read books to learn new skills? Are you sad when you are reading the last page of a new book? Then you will love my new books and reading themed collection. Inspired by the love of reading and the irresistible charm of old books, “Ex Libris” will help you document all the excitement, adventure, and magic that a well-written book can bring. Remember that one book that changed your life, cherish the memory of that particular book that made you feel good… Grab a cup of tea, your favourite book and get lost!
