Did you ever visit some place that you wanted to take back home with you ? I did.
I was on one of the most beautiful islands known in Denmark, with the unusual name of Fur. For me this place is totally idyllic, with very pure nature, inspiring views, beautiful plants and landscapes as well as friendly people. At various places on this island, I kept seeing these specially painted, artistic fish, each one different from the last, created in every style imaginable, by artists who live there. You found them everywhere: near houses, the church and museum or just hidden between bushes in unexpected places. It was a nice surprise and always made me smile. After this journey I wanted to hold on to this memory. Since I always have a book with me, I ended up creating bookmarks that always make me smile when I look at them. I’m sure it will have the same effect on you or your friends :-)
This bookmark is one of a school of Fur fish. My own Fish Parade, like on the island Fur in Denmark. Every fish has own energy, personality and style to make you and your book happy! Be different, give up owls and cats; now it’s time for islands with a view of the seaside !
