This bookplate was introduced by the Antioch Bookplate Company in the late 1950s and adapted by Yellow Springs, Ohio, artist Robert Whitmore from the famous Albrecht Dürer illustration. Robert Whitmore also created the popular design B252. According to Antioch founder Ernest Morgan, "Albrecht Dürer and his brother lived in 15th century Germany. They both wanted to be artists, but did not have the money to go to school. Albrecht's brother “drew the short straw” and Albrecht got to go to school. When he was done (or so the story goes) his brother's hand had become so knotted and stiff from the years of work that he could not cut it as an artist. Albrecht then painted the famous painting as a lasting tribute."
