Set of Dylan quotes bookmarks, as decribed by the seller (Azeeda): "A charming set of three laser engraved bookmarks. The bookmarks are 191mm high by 45mm wide and come in a set of three. They are 1.5mm thick and are made out of a high quality birch plywood from sustainable sources.
Each of the bookmarks has a slightly different shaped 'top' for a little variation, although each have a hole to thread through some twine or rope. We recommend using Dette's 2mm Satin Rope; this is available in a range of beautiful colours.
Each bookmark is laser engraved and cut and so may have a delightful 'smoky wood' aroma on receipt - unfortunately, this will fade fairly quickly. You may choose to give the bookmarks a very light sanding / buffing to remove any signs of the laser engraving method but many people leave them untouched for that authentic look."
quote #1: "Life is more or less a lie, but then again, that's exactly the way we want it to be"
quote #2: "I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it acccepts me"
quote #3: "He not being born is busy dying"
quote #4: "You need something to open up a new door, to show you something you seen before but overlooked a hundred times or more"
quote #5: "If you want to keep your memories, you first have to live them"
