The Arts and Letters Club Toronto

Just a quick update today as I've got a bunch of other deadlines to attend to.  A bit more research on the Arts and Letters Club Ex Lbris I mentioned in yesterday's post on designs by Canadian Group of Seven artist J.E.H. MacDonald has revealed three different versions of this bookplate.  Though I have yet to put a date on them, I have found the plate inked in blue/purple, red/brown, and black.  If anyone knows why three different colours were used - perhaps a first, second, and third printing (?) - I'd be interested to know.  I think a quick email to the Club is in order....
