A bookplate is a plate for the book that the author hand signs for us to adhere inside the book. Each bookplate is hand-signed by the author. Most bookplates are custom designed by our award-winning designers for a specific book. For titles that are signed on the bookplate, the product page will prominently indicate this multiple times. Bookplates make it logistically possible for authors to sign copies for our customers when they otherwise would not be able to because of the logistics involved in having hundreds or thousands of books shipped to their location amidst their busy schedules.
