Random Bookish Thought:

In “Harry Potter”, witches and wizards can conjure Patronuses and these tend to reflect the person they are inside.

In Philip Pullman’s “His Dark Materials” trilogy, people in Lyra’s world have daemons, which are animals and tend to reflect the type of person they are.

“Northern Lights” by Philip Pullman

I really love that there are these cute little illustrations at the start of each chapter in “Northern Lights” by Philip Pullman, so I’ve picked these for today’s challenge task! I love that each one relates in some way to the content of the chapter: in the case of the one picture above, it’s one of the armoured bears introduced to Lyra on her travels to the north. They are so simple but beautiful, like little ink stamps almost.
