The owl is a common symbol of wisdom in the West. Books supposedly make us wiser.

This bookmark is to be used when you need a break in your (wise) readings.


'Know', 'Wise', and 'Idea' are the three words to be found on the 'Owl' bookmarks.

The words are hand-printed with wood type and each pop-up is hand-cut and folded by the artist. (2006)


Book Worm and Wise Owl

In 2009 the Wise Owl was reprinted in an edition of 100 and a new bookmark the Book Worm was designed also in an edition of 100. They are both still available.

All hand-printed with letterpress.
