Saving one's spot

If you're looking for some book-themed presents that manage to be both awesome and affordable, check out these bookmarks by Olympia-based artist Sarah Utter, creator of the "Reading Is Sexy" t-shirt:

Each hand-inked, letter-pressed bookmark is made from a salvaged album cover, and features the final line from one of three classic books: Willa Cather's My Antonia, Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea, and Herman Melville's Bartleby the Scrivener. I certainly wish Ms. Utter had chosen different titles (something a little less painfully eleventh-grade-Honors-English would have been nice), but these puppies cost a mere two dollars apiece. Buy all three and give them to some poor kid heading off to college--let 'em know what they're in for.
