This bookmark, I fear the Twig Ogre and I love balloons, was inspired by the way that reading creates strong emotions and takes us to other places. Every bookmark in the edition of 100 is slightly different as a result of the techniques used. The expression on the balloon's face, for example, varies because it was drawn by hand.
