Printable Freebie: Gemstone Bookplates

by Maxwell Tielman

One of my favorite online discoveries of the last year was the British Library’s Flickr stream. Not necessarily what you’d expect from a social media page, The British Library’s Flickr functions as a massive, searchable online compendium of scanned imagery, largely in the public domain. In other words, a crafter’s goldmine! Ever since I discovered the Library’s feed, I’ve been poring over it on a regular basis, bookmarking images of planets, gems, geometric shapes, and nature for future use in projects. These bookplates—perfect for all of your summer reading—feature images of gemstones and minerals culled from the British Library’s collection. Just print out the template (below), cut out, and affix to the endpages of your books! Happy reading! —Max
