I was so fascinated by this story by Baroness Emma Orczy when I was a teen. My friends and I read the first book (unaware that it was a series at the time!) and watched the movie (repeatedly) telling us the story of the brave Scartlet Pimpernel during the French Revolution. High adventure and romance indeed!
A fellow Bookstagrammer asked me if I'd make something with The Scarlet Pimpernel and this bookmark is my reply. (I love special requests. I can't always honor them for one reason or another but when I can it's awfully fun!)
This bookmark features my original watercolor illustration of The Scarlet Pimpernel along with the following well-known refrain:
"They seek him here, they seek him there, those Frenchies seek him everywhere."
This bookmark features my own watercolor illustration on one side and vegan leather on the other (dyed a rich black tone), stitched together to create a durable, 4mm-thick rigid bookmark.
