Hello, my name is Liudmila. I was born in Lithuania, have family roots in Russia, but now I live in Norway:) I can't tell anything astonishing about myself... I'm not registered in the Guinness Book of Records, haven't invented the bicycle and wasn't elected as a president :D I'm an ordirary person with simple hobbies - love travelling, reading books, meeting my friends, I just love life as it is, with all advantages and disadvantages. I just have an interesting hobby - I collect bookmarks :) I'm a passionate bookmark collector and hope to find more collectors, exchange bookmarks with them, show my collection to others and have a look at other collections :) You can contact me, if you're interested in bookmark exchange :) Hope to find friends from all over the world :)

Papyrus bookmark

These bookmarks are made from genuine Egyptian papyrus and printed with a unique Egyptian design. Each bookmark comes in its own plastic sheath with tassle.
The ancient Egyptians used papyrus as a form of paper. It was made from the papyrus reed that grew along the banks of the Nile. Strips of papyrus pith were arranged on two layers, one horizontal, the next vertical. They were covered with linen and heavy pressure applied. The strips would weld together in their own sap.
The papyrus bookmarks and made from papyrus and each has an image of an ancient Egyptian scenes on it  and shows the Hieroglyphic Alphabet .
