Beautiful Bookplates of Etsy

When I was a charming, precocious child, I used to force my younger sister to sign a contract each time she borrowed one of my books. I’d write it out on an index card, threatening dire reprisals if anything happened to my precious volume, and refuse to let her touch the book until she signed.

It sounds sort of cute, but it was a little on the crazy side. Don’t be like me – instead of making fake legal documents to protect your library, just claim your books as your own using one of these beautiful bookplates.
