Have you ever heard of "Ex Libris"?

Ex Libris is latin, it translates to "out of the books of" or "out of the library of" and is used to declare the ownership of a book. Ex Libris, or bookplates, have existed since approximately the invention of printing in the 15th century. An Ex Libris can be stamped or sticked inside of a book. Usually the phrase "Ex Libris" and a graphic as well as the bookowners name are used. Ex Libris are often masterpieces of miniature art. Ex Libris designs sometimes can tell you about the bookowners interests, job, place of birth, date of birth or are sometimes a name allegory.

There are a wide variety of designs possible. Wildlife, landscapes, calligraphy, religious, architectural, mythological and erotic designs can be used. This is only limited by imagination.
