Do you want voracious bookworms in all your books? Of course you do! Now you can print your own: this PDF file will be available instantly once your payment is complete. The art is a reproduction of my original acrylic painting "Voracious," on collaged text & maps, depicting a bookworm devouring tasty books, in a whimsical botanical-illustration style.
These high-resolution bookmarks print five to a standard 8.5 x 11 page; each mark measures 2"x7". Simply print them on card stock & cut them apart!
You may print as many copies as you like, ***for personal or gift use only.*** The "sample" text will not appear on your copies.
Please understand that print quality will depend on your printer, & color may vary from what you see on your screen.
The original painting "Voracious" (24" x 12") hangs in my beloved local public library (Cameron Village, Raleigh, NC). It was created for an exhibit of my paintings & illustrations, called "Pictures & Conversations," & when the show ended I donated the painting to the library. I'm a bookworm myself & have checked out thousands of books there, so it seemed only right to give something back! I think public libraries are among the world's most brilliant inventions. Don't you?
The quote on the bookmarks is from Francis Bacon, The Essays: "Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested." It is hand-lettered by me, then added to the image in Photoshop. Please convo me if you would like a custom message for your bookmark. Cost will depend on complexity, purpose & style.
The first & third photos feature one of my very favorite Fleam finds, Cecil's Book of Insects, 1872. The book is not included in the download! ;-)
Beautiful and a bargain for 5 bookmarks! I printed it out on photo paper and they look wonderful. Thank you so much.
