I know you provided this in 2010, but I just wanted to say, it's brilliant, very beautiful :)

Thanks! I didn't make it, just did the conversion to SVG and spelled out "Ex Libris" using the letters from the original title. The X is actually a pair of C's back-to-back.

Yes, I recognized how you got this one. I refer to that as "synthesizing" clipart, and a good 80% of my work is done from public domain work and I also modify the originals sometimes in the way you did to add "ex libris". But still, great eye for noticing this one, I really liked it, and as someone who synthesizes old public domain sources too, I not it takes some work to make them look good as clipart.
