Inkwold, a trilogy written by German author Cornelia Funke better known by its first book Inkheart, illustrates the world of Mo and Meggie, father and daughter with unusual talent of 'reading out' the characters from books and 'reading in' the real people. They have no control of what will get out of the book, hence the innumerable amount of trouble they get themselves into during their readings of various books.

Out of three published books, only Inkheart was made into movie in 2008. There has been no final consensus about Inkspell and Inkdeath (originally Tintenblut and Tintentod).


Due to original publishing language being German, Cornelia Funke's work, and by default fandoms, has stronger base in Europe.

Inkheart follows that rule that despite being made into movie, and statistics on multifandom pages shows it: both and AO3 have very small pool of fanfics. Surprisingly, fanart's presence is very strong on Deviantart.
