The idea for the creation of this bookplate formed on a rainy day on a train to the Garth Nix signing of his new release Clariel at Forbidden Planet in London. It takes me nearly an hour on the train so I had plenty of time to think, and scribble and doodle and I had postcard sized note card, as it's small and convenient for doing art while travelling. I managed to scribble an outline for Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen and Across the wall. I put a bit more effort into Clariel, since that was the one he'd actually be signing. After an hour or more of queuing, Garth was very kind to sign five almost blank note cards, as well as the novel I'd bought in the shop after I explained my purpose. He's seen the end results on Twitter, and since he favourited them, I think he liked them.
