"An amazing and LARGE site about bookmarks"  - University of Michigan about Mirage Bookmark website  

As we started back in February 2001, we thought it must be boring for most of our visitors to read, yes, we are a Swiss producer of bookmarks. Thus we thought that we should offer something interesting to the visitors of our website and came up with the idea of a general bookmark exhibition showing beatiful bookmarks from different eras and in various layout. However, we did not have such bookmarks at hand to display them here. This is how we started collecting bookmarks, old and new ones, made of card, silk, metal, leather and of more materials. Meanwhile, we have added so much new content related to bookmarks to this website, that we can say, yes, this is web's currently the leading reference site for bookmarks. Please read below about what our company is doing and all about our bookmark contents.  
Mirage Bookmark is a product line of the Swiss company Maner Consulting specializing in the production and distribution of exquisite art bookmarks.
Mirage Bookmark's product range includes world's finest etched metal bookmarks with unique cutout and engraved artwork, a popular merchandise
in bookstores & gift shops worldwide. Another speciality in the Mirage Bookmark line are quasi-handmade fine art print card bookmarks which are designed to accompany important exhibitions in leading art museums in Switzerland and abroad.
As already mentioned above, the website of Mirage Bookmark is not a mere company website, moreover it is the currently largest resource of knowledge about bookmarks on the internet. The most important part of our site - The World of Bookmarks - is an information base with the following sections dedicated to bookmarks: The History of Bookmarks, Books & Publications, Link Collection, Bookmark Quotes, Essays, Collector Informations & Events. Our website also hosts an extensive online bookmark exhibition - The Art of Bookmark - which showcases in beautiful pictures all types of bookmarks from 1850s up to now and represents a study of bookmark design and make-up in different eras and trades. Another service of the Mirage Bookmark website is a list of bookmark collectors from presently 38 different countries wishing friends all over the world for the purpose of exchanging bookmarks. Therefore, we are proud to say:

I received my bookmark order today. The bookmarks are exquisite! I am glad I ordered so many and will be proud to give them
as gifts as they are unique and of such high quality."   - Nancy W., Seattle, WA


The cutout cardboard bookmarks show the figures Le Commentateur and La Commissaire by the French artist Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985), the founder of the art movement Art Brut (outsider art) dedicated to art outside the boundaries of the official culture. Altogether four bookmarks with figures of Dubuffet have been created by Mirage Bookmark to serve as merchandises during the Jean Dubuffet exhibition (31.1-5.8.2016) staged at the leading Swiss modern art museum
Fondation Beyeler.


Mirage Bookmark has produced a new set of magnetic bookmarks as a promotional merchandise for the International Friends of Bookmarks (IFOB). The bookmarks are available in the Shop of the IFOB website.
