A fellow bookstagrammer asked if I would consider adding this quote to a bookmark and left me at liberty to design something for it. It's a true statement and therefore I was happy to oblige. My best friends and myself bond over the shared love of reading and friendship is a beautiful place to share your favorite reads. I can't think about books and friendship though without thinking of my favorite literary friendship so this ends up being a tip of the hat to them as well.
This bookmark features my own original watercolor illustration along with the following quote by Irving Stone:
"There are no faster or firmer friendships than those than those formed between people who love the same books."
My illustration is shown with the quote on the front side of the bookmark, and vegan leather on the other (dyed a rich black tone), stitched together to create a durable, 4mm-thick rigid bookmark.
