As a kid I loved shopping for school supplies. While I loved getting new pens, pencils and paper, my favourite part was getting new books and the ritual of wrapping them in Con-Tact (clear Con-Tact of course). I’d cut out pictures of movie stars or bands that I loved and would put together a little collage on the cover. I’d stick a sticker on the inside cover proclaiming that the book was mine and I’d be all ready for the new school year. It’s funny thinking about little rituals like this. Even though it happened years and years ago I remember it like it was yesterday.
I’ve just popped these back-to-school labels (bookplates) on my Etsy store and there are more to come to stay tuned.
