Just discovered these fun bookmarks and the how-to on YouTube. This coffee lover loves this idea! Shall find some time soon to make some and add them here on my blog. Meanwhile, it's time for a cup of coffee!
...is an interesting article on bookmarks and bookmark collecting by Kerrie More, published in Issue 29 of UPPERCASE Magazine (Canada).
Really like this whimsical drawing "Some Potential Bookmarks" by Grant Snider which I discovered on his website Incidental Comics. I have definitely used more than one of these items as a bookmark!
Grant Snider's wonderful work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times Book Review, The Kansas City Star, The Best American Comics 2013, and all across the internet. A collection of his comics, The Shape of Ideas, will be published by Abrams in April 2017.
The very first World Bookmark Day! How very wonderful!
IFOB (International Friends of Bookmarks), of which I am a member, is organising the first ever World Bookmark Day to "... celebrate the readers' little helper and the ever faithful companion of the books for 2000 years".
There are some great activities you can get involved in such as an international bookmark swap and a raffle where you can win hundreds of bookmarks!
You can also get involved in helping to promote the event in several fun ways!
Thus far, I have sent 70 bookmarks to Switzerland as a contribution to the raffle and have joined the bookmark swap. I am looking forward to the results of both!
Now its time to join the WOBO - World Traveling Bookmark World Tour!
