I heart books and those things that hold our place in them

I love books but I get easily distracted and am therefore usually balancing 3-4 books at a time. That’s why bookmarks are so important to me. There’s also something very romantic about the bookmark. I even think it would be really cool to have a picture book of only bookmarks. Then again, something like that probably already exists. Anyway, I’ve come across some pretty neat bookmarks lately and thought I’d do a roundup.

Modern Styles

The abracadabra bookmark(left) and the leaf bookmark (right) were designed by Korean designer Wonsik Chae. Abracadabra is really neat in that it employs the flow of air to lift the pages.

The Story Behind the Bookmark are a series of fairytale-like bookmarks that sort of act as the bridge between the real and surreal. They were designed by Yuko Tokuda & Yumiko Komiya from Sun-Ad.

  1. Thank you for paying tribute to the lowly bookmark! The selections were so nice. Bookmarks certainly are under-appreciated items with a lot of design potential!
    Now I’ve got some ideas for making some bookmarks. Thank you!
