The Book Thief - Bookmark by xLillyWonka The Book Thief - Bookmark by xLillyWonka
The title puts in a nutshell - it's a bookmark for The Book Thief, which I just finished.

And it is dedicated to two people, to :iconpaper-tree: who first talked to me about the book and to my colleague who kindly borrowed me his example.

The book itself moved my quite a bit and it's really well-written, narrated by Death, about a girl in Nazi-Germany.

I digest almost anything I read by making at least one drawing of it which helps me capturing my imagination. Sometimes it's a bookmark. I really like how this turned out, although it looks much better in real, so I have to be honest - I enhanced it digitally here and there, especially Liesel's facial features... I will have to work on the original a little more as well :roll: Otherwise it's all been done by the usual pencil-water colour combo. :)

Your summary really compliments the picture well.

Gave me a lot of insight into your picture that I would not have otherwise known.

It's gorgeous and creative, I find myself slack jawed that I never considered such a simple but genius idea!

Making a drawing or some sort of craft to accompany any literature you read is a wholly original idea and I applaud you for your passion.

IT is inspiring.
