I am looking for a bookplate design / an Ex Libris design as a present for my mother.
She is 65 years old and a retired diplomat who is for quite some time looking for a nice bookplate that should be printed on labels to be pasted on her books.
The Ex Libris/bookplate is supposed to reflect her personality and her interests:
- she is a book worm
- rather old fashioned
- still fond of paper rather than digital media
- she still uses pens and pencils
- she likes candles
In that sense a friend has already designed an Ex Libris for her but she found it too geometrical for her taste and too "masculine".
Moreover the Ex Libris should include her name "E. Birgen Keşoğlu".
Please note the two Turkish letters "ş" (23rd letter of the Turkish alphabet) and "ğ" (9th letter of the turkish alphabet) as described at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_alphabet .
As a sample three images are included with this design request.
The first is the design of a friend and the others are pictures taken by my mother to give an idea of the "character" of the Ex Libris to be designed.
Please also note the following details (as they have been asked by others):
- the size of the image will be printed with an approximate size of 8 centimeters in height and 7 centimeters in width
- the text should include "Ex Libris" and the name "E. Birgen Keşoğlu"
