W3 – Perched owl Pringle bookplate
Introduced in the late 1940s, this owl design was adapted by the Antioch Bookplate Company from a steel engraving designed and originally published by William Pringle. It is one of our most popular designs and is available without added text in our Non-Personalized category. The “ex libris” text in the open 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.
