M777 – Owen Wise oil lamp on book bookplate
Introduced in the late 1950s by the Antioch Bookplate Company, this design centers around an open book illuminated by an oil lamp. The artwork is by artist Owen Wise, who created many popular bookplate designs. 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.
