Size guidance. If you are unsure I suggest Measuring the circumference of your thumb between knuckle and nail.
16mm diameter works for 50mm circumference. 18 for 56. 20 for 62. 22 for 69. There is some leeway with these numbers.

This simple but elegant page holder allows for easy one handed reading of you favourite book. Slip one on your thumb and enjoy the convenience. The elegant wings engage with the spine of the book and effortlessly hold the page open leaving your other hand free to eat, drink or hold on whilst standing on public transport. On the train, a plane, in bed or laying on the grass in the park.

The first photo depicts the timber you will receive. Note that the grain patterns and colour can differ from one item to another, that is the nature of natural timbers.

These are made Camphor Laurel timber. Camphor Laurel is a weed species in my country. While the wood is often very beautiful as is the case with these Book Birds, management of the weed is essential to managing our environment.

You will barely know you have it on your thumb. 90mm long, 40mm wide and 10mm thick they will easily fit in a pocket or handbag.

Four hole sizes are available. 16mm, suitable for children and petite ladies, 18mm probably best for most ladies,20mm which is suitable for most men, or, 22mm for those with larger hands. Please select your chosen variation at checkout.

One for the handbag, one for the bedside, maybe even one for the office. These would be a wonderful gift for those that love to read. With a little care these will last several lifetimes.

I love this item, unlike the plastic thumb things that are mass produced, this accessory doesn’t leave marks in your book as you use it. It’s worth every dollar and you should buy from this gentleman, if you’re looking for a sign to buy this thing take Thile time to do so now

Fantastic concept, works well and definitely helps rest my thumb. Very sturdy and I'm confident I'll get many decades of use out of it.
