A Bookmark Bibliography - compiled by Georg Hartong
January 2016 , last revised 30 December 2021
This bibliography is a comprehensive list of printed works related to bookmarks which should include preferably all known publications, at least it contains all the ones to the best of our knowledge. Actually, such a list is a summary of the whole Bookmark Literature and thus represents a valuable reference material for research on bookmarks. The bibliography in its first version was compiled by our editor Georg Hartong and has been published on this website in January 2016. It contains the following categories:
- Books & booklets concerned with the bookmarks only
- Magazines and periodicals about bookmarks
- Books with sections or information about bookmarks
- Articles published in periodicals or as separate papers
- Books on handicrafts and do-it-yourself topics dedicated to
bookmark production, such as embroidery designs
- Other bibliographies of bookmarks
Of course, it is evident that the bibliography has to grow with every new publication and therefore needs continuous updating. At this point, we would like to invite our visitors to support us by submitting information which might have not yet been added to the bibliography. Please use the contact form below for this purpose, and thank you very much for your help.
