I’ve just received a box of custom-made bookplates with little Broo and Morg on them, designed by Sebastian Ciaffaglione, who did the character drawings in the book.
They are only small – roughly 7.5 x 10.5 cm (3″ x 4″) – and the idea is that, if you want your copy of Museum of Thieves signed, but don’t live in Tasmania, you get a signed bookplate instead and stick it in the front of your book. (You peel the backing off – it’s a bit tricky and you need good fingernails!)
As well as my signature, I can personalise them with someone’s name – ‘For Josephine’ – or include a short message – ‘Happy Birthday!’ – but there’s not room for much more.
So leave a message if you’d like one (or two or three or four) and I’ll email you to get the details.
Lian Tanner has been dynamited while scuba diving and arrested while busking. She once spent a week in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, hunting for a Japanese soldier left over from the Second World War. Nowadays she lives by the beach in southern Tasmania with a large fluffy tomcat called Harry-le-beau.More about Lian
