I would like to have an ex libris stamp made for my girlfriend's birthday.
We are both historians and, as such, I'd like to have as many of the following motifs included as possible:
- The words "Ex Libris"
- Her initials: "E. G. "
- A gothic summer house/estate or whatever variation you feel looks best (she specializes in medieval architecture)
- A kangaroo (she is Australian)
- A maple bonsai tree (the treasure of our garden).
The layout and general design I'd leave to you as the artist however I would like to limit the size to a stamp that fits nicely on both A5 and A4 sized book pages. Exact dimensions, though, are up to you.
Can you please tell me whether you are interested in taking on this commission and, if so, how much the job will cost?
The stamp would be shipped to Dublin, Ireland.
Thank you, in advance.
