Bronze Book Darts
A tin of thirty bronze Book Darts ideal for marking passages in books for later reference. Perfect for Shakespeare, but just as suitable for Stephen King. Comes in a variety of colors. Made in Eugene, Oregon. (
What’s that passage from Hunger Games that let you achieve momentary transcendence? Didn’t you mark it with a scrap of paper? It must have fallen out. You hunt for the words, but by the time you find them, the urgency, the magic, have faded. If you had used a Book Dart, this wouldn’t have happened.
The dart slips onto the edge of the page, stays in place, doesn’t stain, and won’t ruin your book the way a highlighter or a dog-eared corner will. You can use a bookmark, sure, but this is more discreet, more elegant, and a bookmark won’t point you right to the line you need.
Mark an inspiring sentence with a dart, then lend the book to a friend, or let it sit on your bookshelf, waiting to be discovered by posterity.
Use & Care
Slip the dart onto the edge of the book's page wherever you need to mark a passage, then close the book and press inward to keep the dart in place. Slip it off and move to another page, if you must.
Over time, the metal will oxidize, but that won't affect your book. If the dart somehow gets dirty, wipe it clean.
Production & Design
Book Darts began with Bob Williams about twenty years ago. He was an English teacher, and he pressed the darts by hand in his basement from spools of bronze, and then gave them to his students. When he left teaching, he started selling the darts to independent bookstores across the country. Today, the darts are made on an industrial stamping machine in Eugene, Oregon.
