The Queen of Everything’s Book [Plate]

One other thing to do if you have recently purchased books is to label them. The most common method would be to label them using book plates. These come in different designs, colors and sizes and add style to the meaning of ownership.

Towards the end of last year, I was able to find a book plate that I could use over and over again and which looks super smashing. Not to mention forbidding. Anyone who sees that big text on the top portion would think twice about book-napping anything labeled with it. Or would they? Hehe

Introducing, The Queen of Everything’s Book rubber stamp by artist Mary Engelbreit.

I found that one on the ebay store: Crow’s Nest Rubber Stamps.
The owner, Jammie Crow, is really super nice and accommodating so I was really happy purchasing that stamp (and others, too) from her.🙂

This is the back portion of the rubber stamp.
The stamp, by the way, is by All Night Media.

Red is my choice of ink because it instantly brights up any piece of paper. Plus, it provides great contrast to the black ink of the pen I use to write in my name, the date the book was purchased and the store I got it from.

See how cute the stamped image is on a blank page of Judy Goldschmidt’s The Secret Blog of Raisin Rodriguez that I bought a few weeks back from Booksale Emall (see this entry).

How about you? How do you label your books? Would love to know.🙂

  2. I have some vintage map of the world bookplates that I use in only my most favouritest books. I bought a number of them on sale right after the printer discontinued them, so I have no way to get more once they run out. I ration them.

Would love to hear from you. Please leave a reply. ;)
