BOOKPLATESEx Libris, Latin for “from the library of” or literally “from the books of,” is printed on a small label and pasted into the front of a book to indicate its owner. This centuries old tradition is revered today by readers of all ages. A book bearing a bookplate reflects pride of ownership, appreciation for literature, and maybe a constant desire to escape into a good story. De Milo Design’s cotton rag paper bookplates are letterpress printed on an antique printing press and backed with peal-off archival adhesive. They are a thoughtful gift for anyone who takes pleasure in owning a book.
