Bookmarks for a Beautiful Beastly Bookworm Below

Gifts of craft and words



Well, not much explanation required, right? An idea was launched, a few people replied, offering their interpretation of a gift of bookmarks for Vincent, from the show characters or from themselves. Moving the mouse over the thumbnail, a "perfect" book title to go with the bookmark will appear, a gentle suggestion of reading material... or just of the book in which to put the bookmark, a book probably already present in Vincent's library...

Of course, Vincent generously allowed us to share his gifts with the many book lovers among his fans, and at the bottom of the page, you'll find print-friendly PDFs of the bookmarks. If you want, you can contribute more, a bookmark and a suggested book title matching it. We'll ensure that Vincent receives it, and we'll also post your submissions on this page.

Happy birthday, Vincent, and many more (books)!

For submissions: batbland {at} gmail {dot} com
