I went to college in the same small Ohio town (Yellow Springs) that was home to the Antioch Bookplate Company, one of the oldest bookplate producers in America, I believe. I've looked them up on the web and found an interesting history of the company (and of bookplates) here: http://www.antioch.com/features_bookplate.html.

Okay, let's try that link again:

With a little further investigation, I've found that Antioch Bookplate has now left Yellow Springs and become Bookplate Ink. You can see some of the old Antioch designs on their website: http://www.bookplateink.com

Bookplates are great. I look forward to checking out that site.

Terri,
Since you mentioned Antioch, Yellow Springs, I thought you might find this recent article about Antioch bookplates amusing. A sharp-eyed librarian identified a book on e-bay as a book stolen from the University library in 1956 by its tell-tale bookplate.
