For anyone who wants a bookplate(s), I will sign and mail bookplates (for free) anywhere in the world. Go to the Contact page to email me. Please include your complete mailing address. Let me know how many you want, and if you want them personalized, for example, To Gertrude, All the best, Chris. The bookplates are 3” x 5” so they’ll fit inside any edition you have although I wouldn’t suggest slapping one on your Kindle. They have an adhesive backing so when you get it you just peel and stick.
