The Art of the Bookmark
Do you love bookmarks? Mirage Bookmark maintains a Web site that houses, in addition to its retail shop, an online museum dedicated to this portable but potent art form. Along with a brief history of the bookmark, an exhibit called "The Art of the Bookmark" offers dozens of images to peruse, from old parchment artifacts to contemporary materials and design. Lots of related links will keep bibliophiles meandering through the Internet in a happy daze. Note that some bookmarks contain partially robed figures, so use judgment in introducing students to this site.
