Bookplate 23, Al Centro della Propria Ragnatela, Now Available

December 31, 2007
Al centro della propria ragnatela loosely translates as "At the center of the spider web" and is also the name of our 23rd Limited edition Bookplate. Italian artist and BookCrosser Roberta Ragona tells us she feels "Reading... is a moment of loneliness, something between you and your book. In fact, it is something that connects you with other readers. Readers, and BookCrossers more than other book lovers, are united with each other by spider webs made of books." BookCrossing is honored to reproduce this passionate acrylics and pastels composition as a high quality bookplate. It is available exclusively at our Supply Store. Virginia Wolfe saw fiction as a "spider's web, attached ever so slightly perhaps, but still attached to life at all four corners. Often the attachment is scarcely perceptible." We see this spider's web as wonderful and hope you will, too.
