Bibliophile Style: The Bookplates of Felix Doolittle

by Christian

BLP-47Whether fraternal club or personal dwelling, every masculine space ought to have a library. Or at least, like at MI HQ, piles of books strewn about the floor.

And to help gently remind borrowers from whence the tome they are reading came, enter the fine bookplates by Felix Doolittle, a stationery company that uses original artwork.

Many of my favorite things are depicted: pipes, cigars, coffee, golf, dapper 19th century beaux (wish I’d been one), old leather chairs and plenty of horses.

File them under Things You Didn’t Know You Need. They are priced at $25 for sets of 20.
