    Happy Holidays!  It started snowing here in Seattle on Christmas Eve and it continues to fall this morning.  We are planning a Christmas Day urban hike and expect to see some snow people on our walk.

    I hope everyone found at least one book under the tree, if you participate in this part of the season.   Will you put your name in your new book(s)? 

    We come across book plates in our inventory, though they are usually of the mass produced kind that you can buy in a bookstore or stationery store in a box, with a blank space for your name. Often these commercially made book plates are prints of famous pieces of art.  Sometimes they are reading and/or book themed.  I remember receiving a gift such a box of book plates in sixth grade:  the classic image of the cat on top of a stack of books.

    Here are some book plates discovered in our current inventory:

     I particularly like the book plate of the open door.  What exciting world will you enter through the pages of your book?
