C206 – Owl woodcut bookplate by Lynd Ward
This owl bookplate is one of eight color woodcuts by American storyteller and illustrator Lynd Ward introduced by the Antioch Bookplate Company in the early 1940s. Company founder Ernest Morgan commented on the tinted background with contrasting foreground design as a way to “convey a feeling of depth in time as well as space.”
This design is 4 inches high and 3 inches wide. It will be custom printed with the name or text of your choice on white, non-glossy, self-adhesive paper with a peel-off backing. The paper, adhesive, and ink are archival quality and acid-free.
