A Bookplate or Three
Since a printmaking course in college, I've enjoyed creating three linocut bookplates to date.
The one to the left is the most recent and was sent to Nathan Sharp, a fellow reader of www.rabbitroom.com (a blog for readers, writers, musicians, artists, and thinkers generally) and the name I drew in the 2014 Christmas gift exchange.
The block and print just below I created for myself several years ago, patterning the design on an Art Nouveau bookplate and the header font of a book I have on cathedrals.
The bookplate at the bottom of the page was designed for my uncle Tom Tschetter, who lived many years in St. Louis, MO; loved his morning walks in the park or along a body of water; and read much and deeply.
