When Anne Fine became Children’s Laureate, she set up My Home Library as a way to encourage children and schools to celebrate their favourite books.
With the help of some of the UK’s top illustrators, My Home Library has created a bank of over 250 bookplates that can be printed off and pasted into the front of a book so that everyone can see who it belongs to. The bookplates come in a range of sizes, and there are colour as well as black and white illustrations.
Cost: Free, as long as the bookplates are not used for commercial purposes.
About My Home Library: My Home Library was set up by author and former Children’s Laureate, Anne Fine. It has been going for over 15 years.
