Bookmark Monday


I am joining Guiltless Reading for a Bookmark Monday meme. I love her bookmarks and don't know where she finds the variety. Well, I was visiting a museum in Antwerp the other day, and found these three bookmarks in the shop. Of course, I cannot help buying bookmarks, I just love them.

The first is on a view over Antwerp depicted on a cabinet in the excellent Plantin-Moretus museum.


The other one comes with a painting by Willem Van Haecht, 'The art room of Cornelis van der Geest" from the house of Rubens.



The third one is a poster for the Red Star Line.



Lovely aren't they? Are you also obsessed with bookmarks?

  2. I adore every single one of your bookmark finds. Like you, I cannot throw a bookmark away (and then I'll go make them, too!) But none like this!
