Beauty and the Bookmark

One of their projects, which began in 2004, is Bookmarks: Infiltrating the Library System, an annual celebration of the bookmark which has featured the work of almost 200 book artists since its beginnings with each producing an edition of 100 bookmarks for free distribution. Their goal is to encourage people to "appreciate artwork in the format of 'bookmarks' and to visit artist's book venues and libraries."
