AL100 – Abraham Lincoln bookplate
This design of the 16th President of the U.S. is based on the Lincoln statue created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and still standing in Lincoln Park in Chicago, Ill. The bookplate artwork was acquired by the Antioch Bookplate Company from the Etchcraft Company many years ago and has only the name “Richard” as the artist. Your name would be added below the “ex libris” text in the scroll. “Ex libris” means “from the library of” or “from the books of.”
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.
