Even for those of us who aren't particularly adept, there's something magical about numbers. I always think of mathematical formulas as the workings of modern day wizards.

This series of bookmarks celebrates those wizards. I've included the work of three generations of math students. The bookmark contains figures from a 1925 copy of The Brown-Eldredge Arithmetics (Book Two), owned and used by children named Emil and Pauline Kapanka. There's also work from a 1961 copy of the CRC Standard Mathematical Tables, used by a Lee Peterson in his 5th period Solid Geometry class. and some homework done by own nine-year-old son for fourth grade math in 2010. I drew a geometric angle in white atop the navy blue decorative paper for a schoolhouse chalkboard effect.

Everything used in this bookmark collage is an original artifact. It contains no photocopies or digital prints. When you buy one of my pieces - whether bookmark, art card, or collage original - you'll find yourself holding objects used and (I hope) loved by a real person, fifty to a hundred years ago.
