How many people in LibraryThing use or better still use it ?
Which rules should one stick to, when disgnig one?
Is there in the internet a site helping to create one ?
I know there comercial ones, but that was not the ideia.....
Why not some kind of a"Library Thing Bookplate"??
Do you know that Dover Books has several collections of bookplates that come with a CD filled with the designs?
A Treasury of Bookplates from the Renaissance to the Present is the one I have.
I'm a complete sucker for illustration.
But the authority on bookplates is the bookplate maven, Lew Jaffe:
I know in the late-19th and early-20th centuries it was fairly common for people to collect and create artistic book plates. I even have a single-title mystery written by a series book author, Agnes Miller, called The Colfax Book-Plate. It was an interesting read and falls under the bibliomystery genre in my view.
I catalogued my library some years ago but it has morphed as my kids have grown and moved away, and my LibraryThing membership apparently expired. So I'm starting over, first cataloguing the newer acquisitions. For book plates, I take a photo from iPhoto, stick an "ex libris" on it, and print out 16, which is 4 pages worth. This is a manageable amount to catalogue in a week. Plus, my bookplates are pretty.
