These retro bookplates look so much like library check-out cards that it could be confusing. Using one as a cool ex libris could cause you to ask:
- Why does this library book have my name in it?
- Is it overdue? If it is, how much do I owe?
- Did I somehow travel back in time to the late 1980s? Just wondering, because that was the last time I saw a library check-out card.
So many questions. Rest assured — this book belongs to you. Says so right on the card! (That's why you bought these, remember?)
Available at One Good Bumblebee.
Update: Just after I posted this, I found a compelling post and discussion thread on Copyblogger about "The Dangers of Humor" in writing. Excellent points throughout, and it made me rethink the humor I've used in this and previous posts. So I must ask: did anyone out there get the humor in this? Or is my wry silliness a waste of time? (Comments, please!)
