I had these up for sale on etsy, but decided to rather share them for free. I’ve given them as Christmas gifts and they seem to be a hit!
I wanted to make bookmarks with real African. flair, drawing inspiration from townships, villages, metropole, landscapes; places I’ve lived at, people I’ve met. And not a leopard pattern or safari theme in sight. So each month is different, some designs might reflect that month’s international or local theme: like Valentine’s Day or Women’s month.
June is full on winter for us in the Southern hemisphere. These colours reminded me of Freestate winters: the endless wahsed out blue sky, white frost, grey gloomy moods, and splash of yellow to lift spirits.
Every end of the month I’ll upload the following month’s bookmark calendar.
