Bookmarks: 400 Patterns | Marcus W. Clemons, Jr.
29 posts | 2 to read
More than simple strips of material used as a placeholder, bookmarks are individual pieces of art reflecting the personality and inner spirit of the owner. Highlighting detail, technique, and skill, these compact works display the ability of the crafter as well. Bookmarks: 400 Patterns presents a collection of four styles of bookmark, each with 100 patterns, suitable for use across multiple mediums.

I am *severely* behind in thanking you for these beautiful bookmarks @LibrarianRyan and the cards — Thank you!!!

Trying to get life together ... It‘s going to be a bit crazy for the next few months... 26 boxes of books packed (most of them yesterday), about 8-10 to go!

#bbcr (??)

LibrarianRyan I get it. And probably 1mo

Avanders @BethM no you‘re not wrong... but we have to list by 3/1 in order to beat the rush ... spring is best time to list in Abq... summer is the worst. 😟 So packing now!! All my pretty books.... 🥺🥺 3w

In Japan, there‘s a custom where bookstores often give customers free paper covers for books purchased, and a lot of bookstores also give out bookmarks, which are usually just advertising.

Some bookstores go above and beyond, though. These adorable book covers and bookmarks are from a store in Osaka called Seiwado.

Catherine_Willoughby Omg the chocolate bar cover . This could work so well with themed covers especially around Christmas time as a special gift to a parent /Sibling or child . Hahaha might be handy to hide some more rated books from others when out & about . Not talking 50 shades but more Outlander for me. Was reading Outlander a few years ago , got stopped twice by strangers who got a bit OTT on what I was reading - wasn't at that chaperter yet ladies ! 1mo

My #favoritebookishitem would have to be bookmarks. These are part of my work collection and I have a whole box at home full of others! #GratefulReads

Nute These are the type of bookmarks that I like more than the purchased bookmarks from a store. I like bookmarks from a book event, a book promotion, from different libraries, from indie bookstores and the ones that accompany orders from Book Depository...oh, and definitely homemade bookmarks. They feel EXTRA special. Congrats on your collection...very nice! 3mo
OriginalCyn620 Nice! 👌🏻 3mo

PurpleyPumpkin @Nute Agreed! While I have my fair share of store-bought bookmarks, I love the ones that are slightly more unique. And they are something that I collect that I use all the time! 😉 3mo
UwannaPublishme Cool collection! I‘m always on the hunt for unique and vintage bookmarks. 😊👍🏻 3mo
PurpleyPumpkin @UwannaPublishme You and me both! My thanks to you for sending a couple of my favs these days. I‘m using the Wonder Woman one right now. 👍🏽😉 3mo

Thank you @LibrarianRyan for the wonderful bookmarks! I love the Ironman and the unicorn is beautiful. Isabella loves the big sparkly one lol
And Lisa Frank paper! Be still my 90s elementary school heart ❤️
Thank you also for hosting this #bookmarkswap it was so much fun

LibrarianRyan That is the last of my Liza Frank stationary paper. It took me 25-30 years to use it all up, but I used up on this swap. I still have a few fold a notes, but not many. I wish they still made it.

Actually now that I think about it, I might still have some black LF stationary, but not much.
6mo
OrangeMooseReads @LibrarianRyan the dollar tree sells Lisa Frank stuff but it‘s not quite the same as the original. That awesome that you still had the original stuff left. 6mo
LibrarianRyan @OrangeMooseReads They do, but mostly stickers. As a military brat who loved to write letters my aunts would send me all sorts of sets, and a lot of LF and Hello Kitty. Years ago I gave a ton of it away to a school program that matched 3rd grades with senior citizens for pen pals. But I kept the LF. 6mo

Bookish mail always makes my day. I got this awesome package today from an etsy company called epikpage. I'm totally thrilled with all the sweet bookmarks (and the adorable sticker they sent). Three of them (fox, alpaca, and cat) are for my daughter, but the others are all mine. They have full images on the backside, too, so I have a little George R.R. Martin booty to mark my place. 😁

LibrarianRyan Love them. Are they full magnet or just magnet squares? 10mo
Traci1 @LibrarianRyan they are magnet squares. The bookmark itself is photo paper - even has the fuji watermark on the back. They're super cute. Though now that I've had a chance to really look at them, they do feel a little fragile. I think they were well worth what I paid. The shipping was free because of my order amount, but it took a while to get here from Poland. 10mo
