Bookmarks before browsers

These four medieval bookmarks are 500-700 years old, yet they are smarter than what we use for our modern books - or even in our web browsers. Some just help you find your way back to a certain page, but others do so much more: they mark text column and line, in addition to the page. The lower one, for example, is like a computer that you program. Sliding it up and down, and turning its disk, means you will find your way back to a very specific place: the very line where you left off the day before.

More information on these rare devices and how they work in this blog I wrote about them.

I keep seeing this image pop up all over the ‘nets, so I thought I’d post the original Storyboard panel I drew. I had a lot of fun with that section!

With Bolin I was going for an homage to Soul Eater’s Excalibur stank face but I think something was lost in translation or perhaps the higher ups didn’t want to go that route. Either way, Studio Mir did a beautiful job cleaning up, as always. :-)
