Book plate or label Squawking Bird

In the spirit of book plates which were elaborate artworks meant to establish ones literary collection, often created  for the wealthy and intellectually elite, I have decide to make something of the kind for my handmade books in order to brand them with my shop Onetindrum.  I have also wanted to make my own book plate just for the fun of it because I love to read and collect books for my own library though I am neither wealthy or part of the intellectual elite.  This image above was made from an old etching I did when still in school and I photo-shoped the text in.  Each one of my handmade sketchbook journals now has its own label on the inside of the back cover which is a nice little addition.
