Emerging illustrators design IBGD bookmarks

In November 2014 I approached The 52-Week Illustration Challenge. Chock-a-block full of wonderfully talented illustrators … the perfect place for sourcing some outstanding bookmarks for 2015? Oh yes!

A competition was launched, and the entries came pouring in. The hardest part was choosing 3 winners … so I picked 4!

Don’t they look wonderful? A great selection which are going to look AMAZING tucked into the books you plan to give on International Book Giving Day.
