ex libris 2






This is the direction I seem to be going with my bookplates (so far). I may end up going in an entirely different direction. Thank you dear readers for all the helpful suggestions. Keep them coming. So far I'm concentrating on Ainu motif-inspired designs. I think I will keep some of them black&white, color some of them with traditional etegami paints, and color one or two with colored gel pens... which I've ordered at great cost, but which haven't yet arrived.
