I love the design of this personal bookplate of former British politician Clement Attlee. It would have been even more aesthetically pleasing if his initials weren't curved letters, but that's the fault of Attlee's parents, not the bookplate designer.

Bookplates, of course, are just one more charming thing lost with the rush to ebooks.
