A badly titled volume that grossly misrepresents its contents.

I own the original Antiquarian Sticker Book and, although I like it, many of the images it contains are lackluster & unusable.

When I heard that this new sticker book was going to be released, I was really looking forward to it because--as the title Bibliophilia suggests--I was expecting it to be full of vintage images pertaining to books, reading, literature, etc. My expectations were not met.

I almost pre-ordered this book, but--given my disappointment with the previous volume--I decided to wait to examine it before actually purchasing. I am certainly glad that I did!

This book is basically a rehash of the types of stickers contained in the original sticker book. With a title like Bibliophilia, this version should contain almost all book & reading-related images, but it doesn't.

It's unfortunate, but I would not recommend this book to anyone.

A great concept with mediocre execution.

This book is a great idea--lots of vintage image stickers compiled into a high quality hardcover book. However, the image selections for the stickers are often disappointing.

There are 26 pages of alphabet stickers, and approximately 124 additional pages of stickers depicting a wide variety of images. Overall, I would say there are at least 30 pages worth of stickers that I would never use; and I venture a reasonable guess that the vast majority of people who would buy this book would not want to use them either.

A lot of the images are beautiful & charming, and some are just silly & quirky. Unfortunately, way too many of them are bizarre, creepy, or just downright ugly. Did the publishers really think that endless images of biological specimens would make a fantastic addition to a sticker book? Apparently they did, but they were way off base. Page after page includes lifelike images of bugs, jellyfish, coral formations, & mushrooms. Dozens of pictures of fungi is not what I was expecting from this book, but that's what I got.

I use stickers all of the time for scrapbooking & for embellishing correspondence. Although a lot of these stickers are fun & cute, way too many of the stickers in this book are just too hideous & tasteless to use for anything.

I find myself using this book all of the time. It is super convenient whenever I want to find a sticker. However, as the number of good stickers is rapidly dwindling, I realize I will be throwing this book away with way too many stickers still left unused within its pages. What a waste & what a shame.

Absolutely stunning! Perfect gift for that favorite scrapbooker or card maker in your life... or that friend who has everything.

I might need to buy another one so I have one to use and one for the bookshelf - it's just to pretty to "rip up".
