Mail Art: Painted Bookmarks Based on My Favourite Books

Chinese Bookmark‘The Painted Veil’ Bookmark

I recently joined a monthly Art Swap Group, with a different theme for each month. The group selects a partner and post your artwork to that person vice versa. April’s theme was to make two bookmark’s based on our favorite books.

My first book mark  based on book ‘The Painted Veil’ by W. Somerset Maugham.  Set in England and Hong Kong in the 1920’s, The Painted Veil is the story of the beautiful but love-starved Kitty Fane. When her husband discovers her adulterous affair, he forces her to go with him to the heart of a cholera epidemic in a remote village. It’s a story of how one-sided relationships can lead to heartbreak for everyone involved.

‘Driving Over Lemons’ Bookmark

This is a story of an English couple Chris & Ana Stewart who buy a remote working farm in Las Alpujarras, Granada, Spain. El Valero lush with olive, lemon, and almond groves, the farm lacks a few essentials—running water, electricity, an access road.

Chris a skilled sheep Shearer and a former drummer of the band ‘Genesis’, Stewart appears on the band’s first two singles.

I have read the two sequels ‘Parrot in a Pepper Tree’ and ‘The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society’.

    Lovely bookmarks! I have read The Painted Veil and enjoyed it – it’s also a good film. I have listened to the other book on audio – they certainly had their work cut out.
