The visual play of the branches of this leafless tree is like embroidery, an intricate lace that as it lays on the pages of your book, will reveal the plot of the story you’re reading. The lightness of the fretwork deserves to be jealously guarded among the pages of your favorite book.

This was our very first bookmark and most certainly the simplest, our mark was still undefined… but the idea was there. What you see here is the result of years of development of cutting and engraving techniques.
