Every time the matter of bookplates comes up on this blog I have to state, I am not a collector of ex libris plates! I have to state that, mainly to make it true. It is such a large and fascinating field of collecting that it would be simply too much to take on. So: I am not a bookplate collector. However, the wonderful Lew at Confessions of a Bookplate Junkie, most definitely is and when he expressed an interest in a few bookplates which I would have happily given him and he nobly insisted on a swap: I asked for anything with a whiff of decadence or a sniff of homoerotica about it. I think he did me proud with these two.
