Create a Book Plate

BookplateDo you own any books? Anne Fine, an award-winning children’s author, has set up My Home Library, myhomelibrary.org/
index.php
, to encourage others to build their own book collections. A bookplate is a unique drawing you can paste in the front of a book to let whoever opens it know that it belongs to you. Thanks to the work of many illustrators, there are countless options to download. You can choose bookplates for donated books or large, medium and small books. If you like humor, you can choose a Funny bookplate, or if you like to color, choose black-and-white bookplates to decorate yourself.
