Peter Ford - Artist
Bookplates
 
     
 
A Bookplate is a label with a printed design intended to indicate ownership. This was traditionally pasted inside the front cover of a book. However, many contemporary Bookplates/ Ex-libris are no longer made to serve this practical function and have become personalised miniature prints, made primarily for exhibition purposes and for exchange between collectors. Peter Ford has taken part in many such exhibitions, most recently in Beijing.
