If like me you still enjoy turning the pages of an actual book, you will be faced with the perennial challenge of what to do when you've finished reading to mark your place. I can't bare to fold the page corner and frequently relied upon using any loose bit of paper that was floating about as a bookmark. That was until I discovered Book Darts.
What are Book Darts?
Book Darts are thin metal clips designed to help you mark specific lines or passages in your books without leaving any unsightly creases or damage. Unlike traditional bookmarks, which can be cumbersome and imprecise, Book Darts gently grip the page, ensuring you'll always find your place without any fuss.
These tiny but mighty tools are crafted from high-quality, archival-safe materials, making them safe to use on all types of paper, from delicate vintage pages to glossy, modern prints.
They are made in the USA by husband & wife team Jeanette and Bob Williams. The first Book Darts were made in their basement and required five separate hand operations using three tools. Now they are made much faster in a high speed press.
