collectors plates

I go the heads up today about a new blog from Philadelphia Book Plate collector Lew Jaffe called obviously Bookplate Junkie. Lew not only gives us images of some rather spectacular plates but a little tidbit of history or wonder to go along with it. I wish I had spent more time lifting plates than selling the books they were attached to. His site is rather young yet, but it’s going on the Bullpen sidebar, and will be a added to MY RSS feed. Bibliophiles grow old and die, but their bookplates wander on. If only I had the gall to actually PASTE something into a book that wasn’t supposed to be there, I could be immortal too. 8(


thanks Michelle!
