W33 – SCHERENSCHNITTE OWL BOOKPLATE, non-personalized
Available as a non-personalized bookplate FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY. This bookplate is a Scherenschnitte design introduced by the Antioch Bookplate Company in the early 1960s. According to Antioch founder Ernest Morgan, this was a “scissor cut-out (Scherenschnitte) design by the Swiss artist Walter Von Gunten, the finest scherenschnitte artist of which we know. The von Gunten designs were originally produced by Von Gunten Originals of Madison, Wisconsin, on greeting cards.” This artwork was chosen in 2012 to print on a new paper/bamboo iPhone case from Twig honoring the band Wilco.
This design is 4 inches high and 3 inches wide. It has been printed on cream-colored, non-glossy, self-adhesive paper with a peel-off backing. The paper, adhesive, and ink are archival quality and acid-free.
