Book geekery: The Paper Princess vintage bookplates

I can foresee bookplates becoming a new obsession of mine. Sweet little 'This book belongs to' inner cover labels have gone almost completely out of vogue (except, perhaps, for we truly dedicated book geeks), but don't you love picking up a book from a secondhand store or jumble sale and finding a little 'Ex Libris' bookplate with a name like Mary or Margaret written in old-fashioned cursive handwriting? I do. It feels a leeeedle bit special.

There are still so many pretty bookplates out there if you know where to look. I just found these little beauties on The Paper Princess. They come in a set of 32 for $US24.99, personalised with your name (or the name of the lucky person you're giving them to - a lovely gift idea, no?), and you can choose two designs.
