|George Washington's Bookplate|
|Sir Augustus Wollaston Franks|
|Ernest Hemingway's Bookplate|
I'm leaning toward the classical bookplate: simple lines around the edges, lots of white space. I don't think I will have "EX LIBRIS" printed on them (latin for "from the books," often meaning "from the library of"). I'd rather leave plenty of space for an author's signature or inscription. I don't need the art. I'll keep it simple.
