St Brigid Press is pleased to now offer elegant letterpress-printed bookmarks, in four designs. Three of them highlight quotes by William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, and John Muir, and one depicts the word "bookmark" in gorgeous Lombardic script with accompanying Bulfinch ornaments. All are designed, hand-set, and printed by Emily E. Hancock on the 1909 Golding Pearl treadle press.

The bookmarks are available locally at Stone Soup Books and Cafe in Waynesboro, Virginia, and at The Sacred Circle Bookstore in Staunton, Virginia. Those of you who live out of the area may order directly from St Brigid Press: email Emily at

The clear "sleeves" that protect the bookmarks are plant-derived and fully biodegradable. Please compost!
