About the Design:
This "Turtle Moon" bookmark is inspired by the time I saw a leatherback sea turtle nesting on the cape lookout national seashore. I never did see her hatchlings emerge, but imagine it looked something like this. The inks used in this product are all made right here in North Carolina. It makes a great gift for a beach trip and some sea side reading.
This particular bookmark is made from a hand carved soft linoleum block.
The printed area of this artwork measures approximately 2 Inches wide by 8 inches tall.
The sturdy, 130 lb cardstock made using sustainable forestry practices and 100% wind energy. It is mounted onto an archival 2ply backing board.
Each Bookmark is shipped in a clear protective "eco-sleeve", which is made from plants and is commercially compostable.

About Block Printing:
Block prints often have slight textures and variations in the finished products. I think that's why I love them-- each one is special. Please be aware that, while I aim for consistency within each edition, there may be slight variations with each print and colors may differ from your computer screen.
Shipping and Production:
Please allow up to a week of time for your artwork to be printed and to dry thoroughly. If you need a faster turnaround time, message me and I'll do my best to accommodate you.
