B254 – Bookplate border design of open books
One of our popular border bookplates, there is room for several lines of text on these designs. They are also perfect for signings by authors. This design was introduced by the Antioch Bookplate Company around 1950 as a memorial bookplate. According to Antioch founder Ernest Morgan, the design was created by Bruce Rogers, who designed the type face known as Centaur and was one of the truly great printers of all time.
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.
