Calling All Student Artists

In 2016, the library adopted a new bookplate, the third in its 50-year history. Bookplates are small, graphic art prints, usually placed on the book’s inside cover. In their 500 plus years of use they also became beloved by collectors, becoming an art form unto themselves. Rockwell Kent, Albrecht Durer, and Paul Revere are counted among artists who created bookplates.

The art of creating bookplates is not dead. Artists and graphic designers around the world regularly take on commissions to create new bookplates. Brown Library would like to expand its own bookplate tradition by engaging student artists to create a new bookplate for the 2017-2018 school year. The winner of this campus-wide contest will be awarded a prize of $100 and have his or her bookplate used in every other book processed by the library next year. The winning entry will be chosen by a panel of faculty and administrators. The award will be made during Spring Fling.
