Bookmarks date back to 1 A.D. and were primarily used in ancient manuscripts of medicines.  Throughout the medieval period, bookmarks were created using a small parchment strip attached to a piece of cord.  Printed bookmarks were considered rare and valuable but eventually emerged in the 16th century to prevent causing a book’s pages any harm. Some of the earliest printed bookmarks were used at the end of the sixteenth century.

The artists of Artistic Talent Group can create a customized piece of artwork for the guest; a unique gift to use with their favorite book.  Our bookmarks are professionally laminated on all sides and are 3″ x 8.5” in size.  They are individually hand drawn by the artist on sleek 110# card stock paper.
