A friend of mine who is a bookseller has been scribbling the release date for The Beggar’s Opera on the receipts she hands to people in her bookstore, so I asked Penguin if they could make up some bookmarks. And here they are! Pretty nifty!
Once again, you need to pretend the colour is a deeper red than what my scanner is producing — honestly, the lettering is not orange and the background is a grey-brown sepia and not the grey-lavender shade you see here. But you can use your imagination!
I’ve seen the draft Youtube video for TBO that the Penguin folks have put together and LOVE it — I think they knocked it out of the park. There are some typos to correct, but hopefully they’ll be finished by the end of the week and I can post up a link. Meanwhile, we continue to plug away at the website but I expect it will be done soon. So hang around … there’s lots of news coming!
Check out Penguin Canada’s book trailer for The Beggar’s Opera here! It’s pretty cool!
