A bookplate, also known as “Ex Libris” (Latin, “from the books of…”), is a small decorative label, bearing the owner’s name. Bookplates were usually pasted on the inside front cover of a book. Today this charming tradition became popular again. Stamps, stickers or even electronic bookplates add a classic luxury touch to any book or a journal.
