February 14 is International Book Giving Day, a day dedicated to getting new, used, and borrowed books in the hands of as many children as possible.
I’ll certainly be giving some books away and sharing others on February 14, and I hope you will too. For those books you’re giving away, you might like to put an International Book Giving Day bookplate inside them.
This year Nicola L Robinson has designed another really fun bookplate you can download, print off, and stick in your books:
If you are an illustrator and would like to design a bookplate for International Book Giving Day, please get in touch! We welcome bookplates written in a variety of languages. The bookplates must be 11.4 cm x 6.9 cm (or 4.5 inches x 2.7 inches) in size. We will make the bookplates available for free at International Book Giving Day’s website for people to download and print themselves.
