A mini master-course in pasting bookplates into your books found at the wonderful site of wood engraver/bookplate designer Andy English. He gives advice ranging from the philosophical  ("This is an enjoyable task; do not rush it but, instead, take the opportunity to spend time with - and enjoy - your books.") to the technical ("I recommend PVA (Polyvinyl acetate) glue as it is flexible, acid free and is easily thinned with water." ). English takes due time with all his work, and the results are lovely.
