Personalized Bookplates

For the past few months, I've been working on a variety of hand-stamped stationary. I've really enjoyed exploring different colours and papers, and coming up with unique pairings for my shop. I thought I'd try something new, so I decided to work on some bookplates. As they evolved, they became a little bigger, more rectangular, and stamped with images such as peonies and robots. Here are the final products: Robots in Red and Peonies in Robin's Egg.

Recently, my friend, Jeni, suggested I create some "masculine book plates". Watch for them in my shop later this week: Flourishes in Black.
