Design your mark on MSU

The MSU Library invites all students to enter a contest to design a new donor bookplate. This is a chance for you to design a functional piece of art that will live on well into the future of the library’s collection.

The Library’s bookplate personally acknowledges donors and the family members or friends in whose name they make a donation to support book purchases. The library has had several bookplate designs. Many featured local scenery such as the Bridger Mounts and the “M.”

Your design may continue this tradition or propose something entirely new.

About Ex Libris, a.k.a., the bookplate

The bookplate, originally known as ex libris, is a labels adhered to the inside front cover of a book that identify the book’s owner.

For centuries, bookplates have been more than mere labels. Indeed, ex libris is an enduring miniature art form practiced since the 15th century. Many distinguished artists have contributed to the genre; Albrecht Durer, Marc Chagall, M.C. Escher are just a few. Contemporary artists continue the tradition and bring fresh interpretations to the art form.
