M614 – Mathematical slide rule bookplate
Designed by well-known science fiction illustrator Ed Emshwiller in the late 1950s, Antioch Bookplate Company founder Ernest Morgan made sure the formulae in the background were genuine. This bookplate is a favorite not only with scientists and mathematicians, but slide rule collectors as well. The “ex libris” text in the book means “from the library 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.
