Bookplates are one of the earliest examples in which a form of branding which is/was serving the practical purpose of claiming ownership over one's library, evolved into it's own artform. I love the limitations of the bookplate (size, text, personal message) and how these "rules" free the artists and designers who create bookplates. Check out Mussolini's bookplate above, creepy.
