Remember when a bookmark was a paper rectangle covered in unique designs that marked your current page? Hell, remember when all books were on paper? If you’re a fan of reading the textured pages of actual books, you probably still use bookmarks. Picture this; it’s evening and you sit down to read your favourite book. It’s dark and reading lights are great and all, but what if your bookmark was the only reading light you needed?
You can thank jewellery designer and photographer Manon Richard for creating just that. Manon is known for her glow-in-the-dark accessories, but this is the first time she’s applied her magical technique to bookmarks. The results of these glow-in-the-dark bookmarks are taking avid readers by storm.
“I work full time at home to create jewellery that glows in the dark with joy and passion, I am blessed to be able to do what I love.”
Her reasoning behind this project is simple – she wanted to find her books in the dark. Manon also makes other products such as pendants, earrings and rings. In order to make her products authentic she uses a high quality glow in the dark material that have a long afterglow effect.
Each item is made from the high quality glow material and shines in a blue-green turquoise colour. All you need to do is charge the bookmark beneath a light for a few minutes and it’ll slowly release its glowing energy throughout the night.
You can buy them on Etsy and these magical glow-in-the-dark bookmarks will make sure you never lose your place again.
