16 Must-Have Bookmarks


If you’re anything like me, you’ll use just about anything for a bookmark: an old receipt, a pay stub, a metro card. But that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the beauty of an honest-to-goodness bookmark. In fact, I wish I owned more of them. So I scoured the internet (but mostly Etsy) for the best bookmarks I could find. From here on out, I’m saving my reading place in style.

These bookmarks are handpainted and feature Elizabeth Bennet and her lovely sisters, plus the charming Mr. Darcy.
