I've done my research and gathered up photos and props and have started on this year's bookplate. As in the past, I am rendering the entire piece using black ink applied with stippling. It's a terribly time-consuming approach but I really enjoy the process.
As in any good work of art, there is significance for me in the subject matter. I like my annual bookplates to represent something personal in my life while also being a pleasing, pretty piece.
