The Eloquence of ER Wyatt

Originally uploaded by Exile Bibliophile
There are many beautiful bookplates. Ive seen scores of eloquent ex libris. You can enjoy many such ownership labels over at the Bookplate Junkie blog every Sunday. This label isn't much to look at, but I love it. I don't know ER Wyatt, but I think we have some things in common. I found this label in an obscure railroad title at that FOL sale a couple weeks ago. It was taped to the bottom of the front flap of the dust jacket. I almost didn't notice it. I grinned, tucked it under my elbow to prowl some more.

Might I recommend a modest look at bookplates, done by a Boston book designer?
