on June 19, 2007

Unfortunately, it’s not going to last long…I’ve got to put the order in by tomorrow. See…my idea for bookmarks (I get two designs) is this–the cover picture of VULNERABLE for one bookmark, and the cover of BOUND for the other design, each picture dissolving from the top of the book mark to a complementary color… Read More
