The love and fascination of book plates is almost as old as books themselves. Collectors and scholars have studied and cherished them for centuries. Originally designed to demonstrate ownership of a book, the plate (also known as ex-libris) has become an art form unto themselves. This book chronicles book plates (specifically book plates of women) through the years. They are both works of art and historical artifacts pertaining to their times and owners.
