M7 – Tree, helmet and mantling bookplate
This regal design, introduced in the 1940s by the Antioch Bookplate Company, had two designers. The helmet and mantling were provided by armorist Dominic Pitoni. The tree artwork, by Yellow Springs, Ohio, artist Robert Whitmore, was the forerunner of the tree in design B252. The “ex libris” text 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.
