Ex libris my Asspocket

I loan out a lot of books. Sadly, I don’t always get them back. I’m sure it’s just a case of me forgetting who I lent a book to and the lendee forgetting who the loaner is.  There is, of course, a simple solution to this, and that is the ex libris stamp! I just discovered etsy seller Asspocket Productions (which, btw, have you ever heard a more awesome name than Asspocket Productions?), who makes GORGEOUS ex libris stamps. GORGEOUS. I’m in love with a number of designs, such as this owl.

Or this steampunk-inspired stamp.

Lion and unicorn! Perfect for Anglophiles!

Oooh, peacocks…

I have an obsession with owls. I have owl pillows, owl stationery, owl art, owl hand towels, owl owl owl owl owl. So you can imagine that I might have perhaps squealed when I saw this owl wearing a top hat while riding a bicycle.

I also love the elegant simplicity of this birdcage.

Antique books. SWOON!

Are there are more where that came from. ELEVEN PAGES more. Clearly narrowing it down to one is going to be the hard part.

What about you friends? Own an ex libris stamp? Need an ex libris stamp? Love the name Asspocket so much you might have started calling your dog that?

  1. I usually lend out books to one or two people. Lately I’ve been making notes in Goodreads as to who has what, but a stamp would be awesome.

    Asspocket would be a lovely nickname for The White One.

  3. Oh these are great! I’ve just been using Property of labels from Vistaprint, but these look so much nicer!

    I have no friends. =(

    Kidding. I don’t actually loan out books. I’m the bum who borrows–but I ALWAYS return things. Those are some really great stamps!

    Um, these are…just…WOW. I know what I’m getting my sister for her birthday!!!

  6. You really like those stamps, huh? I kinda adored your squealing over the owl wearing a tophat riding a bicycle, too cute.

    i had one of these stamps and it absolutely would not make a clean stamp.
    i contacted the proprietor and she told me that there was a problem with “my technique.” When I told her that it still didn’t work, she became very abrasive, so much so that I had to report her to Etsy for harassment. FYI.
    TL, DR: I think there are way better stamps out there on Etsy.
