The Bookmarks projects series aims to encourage appreciation of work in the format of the artist's book. Participating artists each produce an edition of 100 signed and numbered bookmarks to give away through distribution boxes at venues around the world.
Over the last twelve years, the Bookmarks series of free artwork distribution has visited 125 galleries, bookstores, workshops, centres, schools and libraries in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Singapore, Spain, South Korea, Switzerland, Turkey, the UK and USA.
75 artists have contributed 47,500 bookmarks to the twelve projects to date. The artists' bookmarks are divided into 100 sets; one full set being sent to each of the contributing artists and the rest divided and sent in distribution boxes to participating host venues around the world, for visitors to take.
Each bookmark is stamped with the current Bookmarks project website address, which directs the taker of the bookmark to the gallery section of the website. Visitors to the site can view works by the artists and contact contributors via their website and email links on our site.
