DescriptionThis bookplate's design features a learned Christian monk interrupted from his work, pausing, he looks outside of the frame at some unknown distraction. His desk is situated outside under a tree and the sun sets or rises behind him on the horizon. The brown tint to the monk's habit may indicate an affiliation with the Franciscan order or may merely be a design decision on the part of the artist.

NotesThe colors on this ex-libris have clearly been printed separately as the register is visibly off, particularly in the lower left-hand corner. A rosette pattern is visible indicating that a halftone offset lithography process was probably used.
