3XU artists created this V.V.I.P. bookmark series to celebrate distinguished human beings and their important achievements throughout history.
The portraits you see in these illustrations are actually wooden bookmarks with little magnets hidden inside. They are handmade and are perfect for marking the pages of your book or planner. Each bookmark also comes with some interesting facts (or myths) about each individual.
If you see your favorite person here please share your thoughts about them and their work!
