D16 – Medical bookplate with serpent caduceus
Introduced in the 1960s by the Antioch Bookplate Company, this medical design features a serpent caduceus ornament drawn by artist Johannes Troyer and “ex libris” wording. “Ex libris” means “from the library of.” Extra space in this design makes it popular for doctors who need additional lines of text.
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.
