Chas Newkey-Burden talks about his love for the book mark on the Guardian blog and finds there are plenty of fanatics out there, including Dutchman Frank Divendal, who owns over 80,000 of them. There are some more really nice examples here, and a shop dedicated solely to them.

We talked about bookmarks before not so long ago.
