This caught my eye today. As a bookseller, of course, you can't avoid bookplates and often they are interesting enough but I confess they are not something about which I know very much, nor do I want to allow myself to be seduced by the lure of yet another collection.
This one I just liked for it's slightly fin-de-siecle rendition of Igdrasil (more normally Yggdrasil), the World Tree of Norse mythology. Actually it's dated 1915. It is by an artist I don't know, M. E. Voelcker and about whom even Google seems to know little. Nor can I tell you anything about J. H. Simpson. So, not a very informative post as it turns out. Hope you like the picture.
