Art of the Bookplate
James P. Keenan (au); George Plimpton (fr)
Since the 15th cent., devoted book collectors have commissioned their own bookplates, known also as ex libris. Whether plain or fancy, bookplates give an owner a special sense of proud proprietorship. This book includes many bookplates owned by prominent people such as George Washington, John F. Kennedy, Joan Crawford, J.P. Morgan, Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, Eleanor Roosevelt, Sigmund Freud, and Charles Dickens, as well as bookplates owned by people who are not famous. Here, Keenan explains the history behind each, and discusses the artists -- some as famous as Rockwell Kent and Claes Oldenburg, others as unknown as their patrons. “This is a book to be treasured.” Over 130 full-color and B&W illustrations.
