On the left you see WOBO - the World Traveling Bookmark
WOBO goes places on a mission to help her bookmark friends to get the recognition they deserve. The task of Wobo is to spread the word about this year's WORLD BOOKMARK DAY - on 25 February 2020. [Note that Wobo is now generic with no date and can be used any time.]
It is a very difficult task, actually, because only very few people know about this event yet. You can help Wobo a lot to accomplish her duty, if you wish. And how?
Just download and print some copies of the Wobo bookmark. Then leave the bookmarks in a book, at a library or coffee shop or whatever place you think is fine for this purpose. The finders of your bookmarks are supposed to report their discovery on this page and do the same as you. Wobo visited many places last year--where will she go this time?
Join the mission and help Wobo! Thank you!
Print these three copies at the same time and cut apart.

Bookla - Between the Pages
Located in Athens, Greece, this company has a range of interesting textile bookmark designs made in a loom. From their About page: "Bookla in Greek means a curly lock of hair. In the victorian era it was very common between lovers and friends to exchange locks of hair and use them as bookmarks. We were inspired by the intimacy such a gift can offer and we wanted to translate that with our special designs. We wanted to capture nostalgic feelings, emotions that literature and storytelling can transfer to readers". The owner, Eugenia Mari, has donated a selection of bookmarks which will go to the winners of the Asim Maner Award and the Bookmark Collection Award. 14 January 2022
