We’re excited to announce the winners of this year’s Bookmark Contest! Talented young artists from around Austin entered their best work to the contest, which asked them to draw a bookmark based on their favorite book. Four categories were judged: Kindergarten, Grades 1 & 2, Grades 3 & 4, and Grades 5 & 6. All of the artwork submitted to the contest is currently on display in our BookPeople Cafe, come take a look!

  1. What a beautiful “collection”! Your picture looks like a title sequence from a Wes Anderson film if that makes any sense?!

    Reminds me of a Haiku by Issa
