Bookmarks are great. They’re perfect as gifts or little trinkets of remembered travels. This month my literary item spotlight goes to Bliss in a Teacup’s through Etsy, Watchful Eyes Bookmark Series – Women Author’s bookmarks.
Made out of repurposed scraps of wood, the pieces are bonded together, sealed and printed with pictures and the names of female authors. They also do a range of other pictures, but new this month are the batch of women writers and it’s about time they get some recognition!
Useful, educating and beautifully done, these bookmarks are handy, earth friendly and the perfect thing to adorn your book!
The creators behind the bookmarks are based in New Zealand, but the prices for the bookmarks are still very reasonable.
I think one of the best things about this company their items is that they’re open to printing custom-made women authors. Just send a request and they’re willing to work with authors they don’t already have prints for. I don’t think there’s anything they could do to make their products better! Everything is pretty stand out.
Remember they do offer loads of other prints on bookmarks and they come in varying shades of wood. Special requests can be made – outstanding customer service!
Which do you prefer? Dogging earring the pages of a book or using real bookmark or just scraps of paper you have lying around? I myself vary between using real bookmarks when I can find them, but I also use any piece of paper when push comes to shove.
