Free Download: Return Duly Bookplate

There is no time more fitting to say thank you and to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a New Year of health and happiness!

To say thank you for your support we want you to have this bookplate Joseph designed, hand lettered, and drew.  The poem is a popular one, found often in books from the 19th Century.

Bookplates: Find the Bee.

We've added five new bookplates to our shop!  Joseph designed and hand drew all of them of course.  A fun fact:  All of our original bookplates have a bee hidden within the drawing.  We thought this would be a fun way to add an original signature to our bookplates. 

Can you find the bee in each bookplate?


All of our bookplates are for sale.  You can buy a 10 pack (printed on archival artist paper) for $15.  Send us an email if you're interested (
