SILK BOOKMARKS

made by Thomas Stevens

 
 

Michael Darby first published a comprehensive list of Thomas Stevens' bookmarks in 1968, in his book 'Stevengraphs', co-authored with Austin Sprake. Darby lists some 460 bookmarks manufactured by Stevens.

Geoffrey Godden extended Darby's work, and listed some 500 bookmark titles.

With the help of John High's unpublished work and other sources, this web site now lists in excess of 700 individual bookmark titles (excluding colour variations), all produced by Stevens in Coventry.

Stevens himself claimed 900 different designs, although this number probably included colour variations and larger souvenir silks.

 
 
In this bookmark catalogue, the silks are listed by the first letter of the writing on the bookmark. Hence 'Compliments of the season' will be found under 'C', whilst 'The compliments of the season' will be under 'T'.

Occasionally the first words are contained within a scroll or as part of the background pattern. These are generally ignored in favour of the true words of the silk.
