The History Of Bookmarks
Bookmarks are probably as old as printed books, having branched roots in Europe, Africa and Asia. They were made of wood, bone or gold or other metals, the perfect complement to the unique and precious objects that books were at that time. It was in the middle ages, with books getting more popular and accessible, that bookmarks too started attaining a new shape and structure. Designers started using string, strips of leather and ribbons to create them. Soon after, the first paper and thin wooden bookmarks emerged.
It was in the nineteenth century that the bookmarks became what we know of them as today, printed on paper and often including a hole with a small string tied through it. They also became an important aspect of promoting business. Now, bookmark online are available for sales and customisations too.
