Hand-Carved Silver Bookmarks Elegantly Add an Artistic Touch to Reading

Designer Massimo Moreale (of Silverleaf) handcrafts silver bookmarks that beautifully combine the art of sculpture and the art of literature. “They are gems that narrate your stories, emotions, memories, wishes,” says the artist, describing his collection of hand-carved treasures. Many of Moreale’s metallic masterpieces actually pay homage to classic stories such as Mody Dick and The Catcher in the Rye. Other works commemorate iconic works of art like Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night, Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss, and Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker. Each of Silverleaf’s bookmarks elegantly add an artistic touch to reading time.

To see more or even own some of the stunningly detailed bookmarks this studio has been producing since 1983, you can visit Silverleaf’s website or Etsy shop.
