Journal Entry 1 by dirtmother from Matlock, Derbyshire United Kingdom on Thursday, April 26, 2012

7 out of 10

This was a little gem. These days I really only use the dedicated bookplates for Bookcrossing purposes, but as a child I had some wonderful Puffin Club bookplates. Plenty of visual jokes and some beautiful, skilled work. There's a stag's head which seems to come off the page with every bit as much life as something which would normally need 3D spex and a rat which the book owner had explicitly asked not to have but which the maker said 'crept in when I wasn't looking' It's quite inspirational for having a go myself.
