List of Canadian Bookplate Designers

Just as important as the bookplates themselves are the artists and creators who have designed them. When Prescott et. al. published their work on Canadian bookplates in 1919, they complained that very little was known about Canadian bookplate designers.  Though a small handful of 20th century artists, such as Leslie Victor Smith, have received more detailed treatment, there remain many artists whose work and portfolios are much less well known.  This page offers a simple list of Canadian ex libris designers I've identified throughout the course of my own research, which I will update on a regular basis as new subjects come to light.  If you know of anyone not included on this list, please do not hesitate to contact me with details at the email provided.
