Winged Victory

Sorry my postings have been a bit sparse. I'm in deadline crunch with no less than 6 projects all coming due at the same general time, and the stress is killin' me. Let me get through the next couple of weeks with some spotty (but neat!) stuff, and I'll make it up to ya.

Here's a nice bookplate, by Garth Jones, a great penman of the early 1900s. It was adhered in a Leon Uris book that I bought some years ago at a garage sale, and I have no idea if it belonged to THE John Knowles of A Separate Peace fame. That Knowles was born too late to have had Jones design it for him, but he could have easily had the design adapted for his use. Who knows . . . anyway, I think the winged victory filigree is lovely.
