A Special Bookmark

Handmade bookmarks would certainly make a book more personal and special. They keep the warmth of someone's hands.

Reflections of India

Two fantastic bookmarks from India. Thank you Abhishek for sending these to me :) I hope I'll visit Taj Mahal and ride an elephant one day!

The Taj Mahal is a mausoleum located in Agra, India, built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal.
In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was cited as "the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world's heritage."

In 1631, emperor Shah Jahan was griefstricken when his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, died during the birth of their fourteenth child. Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1632, one year after her death. The court chronicles of Shah Jahan's grief illustrate the love story traditionally held as an inspiration for Taj Mahal.
