For The Love of Old Books

For the love of reading

series-once-upon-a-time-coloredI recently came across a wonderful old copy of The Captain's Children, and found these wonderful book plates. The book dates back to 1835.

series-once-upon-a-time-coloredI just love each one. I am creating greeting cards with these plates and have already added prints measuring 8 x 10 inches on my etsy shop.

I love these reading plates as well. They look so sweet together as a set. I wish you could teach a class on how to restore these types of images.
