New Quimby’s Bookmarks! Hot Off the Press!

I know many of you are fans of the little bookmarks we make with illustrations by different artists, so without further ado I introduce our newest bookmark designed by Leif Goldberg. For those of you unaware of Leif’s work he is the brain behind National Waste, maker of those awesome silk screened calendars we get every year, and one of the mighty muscles behind the infamous Paper Rodeo. So next time your in the store scoop one up and keep your collection complete!

I wonder if any of you can name all the artists who have made bookmarks for us?
