A115 – Owen Wise bookplate design with poem
This design — with its verse celebrating the joys of books — was introduced by the Antioch Bookplate Company in the 1940s. The verse was written by Emilie Poulson, an author of children’s books. Owen Wise designed the artwork, which was originally printed in brown and yellow.
This design is 4 inches high and 3 inches wide. It will be custom printed with the name or text of your choice on non-glossy, self-adhesive paper with a peel-off backing. The paper, adhesive, and ink are archival quality and acid-free. Unless otherwise requested, these are printed on cream-colored paper, similar to what is shown here. If you choose brown ink, both the artwork and your text will be printed in brown.
