A new collector sharing his affinity for Ex Libris Bookplates

As if collecting bookplates wasn't enough.........
.........now I am hooked on creating my own bookplates. I am most attracted to woodblock cuts and lino cuts as I am not very artistic and these are very forgiving. I recently completed the imagery portion of my first ever bookplate (for my own library). I have yet to do the lettering portion but I must say that I am well-pleased with the proof of the main image.
Here he is in all his glory! I will post final version once completed! This was a heckuva lot of fun and not too terrible difficult....just nerve-wracking!
