My Home Library

A good few years ago, I was asked by Anne Fine to draw a bookplate for My Home Library.
I thought it was a great scheme and said I would do one, but when I tried to make the drawing, I just couldn't do it.
I don't know what the problem was but I just couldn't complete this tiny job.
I felt really awful about it every time I thought of it over the years, so finally set to and produced something.
And here it is.
I think it's quite fun for someone who might have a library full of fantasy books.

I hope My Home Library will be able to use it.
Feel free to click on the picture for a larger image to download for non-commercial use as a bookplate.

Well, speaking as a fantasy reader, historical fantasy writer, and a librarian...

I love it!

But maybe it's mostly because the one on the left looks so much like erm, me...

I don't think so!
Actually Susan, the person who most inspired my old dragons was Charles J Haughey.

Thanks for the comment.
I hope you can make use of the bookplate.
I think I'll remove the text and print a bunch on sticky paper to send to people who want signed books without the postage hassle.

All the best
