Speaking of bookmarks, here’s a new product that might interest people who like elastic closures on their covers: the, uh, elastic bookmark.
Bascially, the idea is that you slip the bookmark into your planner or notebook, then wrap the elastic around the front and back covers to keep them closed. The brown-and-tan colored closure is supposed to complement a variety of cover colors, while the ruler gives you a handy way to, you know, measure (it’s marked in centimeters and inches).
At 5 inches tall, it’s a bit big for my Sapa X planner, but it fits nicely onto my large- and medium-sized Clairefontaine notebooks, and will be great way of making sure they stay closed whenever I toss them in my bag. I suppose there’s no reason you couldn’t use it for ordinary books, as well.
The other side, if you’re curious, features a little globe graphic:
The elastic bookmark retails for $1.50 and is available now, so ask your favorite retailer if you’re interested.
