THE STORY BEHIND THE BOOKMARK by Yuko Tokuda + Yumiko Komiya A bookmark and its story, which are reminiscent of foreign picture books of the past, scary and unreal, yet fascinating all at the same time. The action of the bookmark being sandwiched between the pages of a book tells a story in itself. It is a bookmark that is caught between the real world and a fictional world. A lonely mermaid. A silly goose. A word thief.
