Merely echoing what the majority of reviewers have said, these bookmarks are a nice buy. Each bookmark is made of what appears to be genuine papyrus, the Egyptian "paper" made from pressing together and drying strips of the papyrus plant, and nicely decorated. The assortment in the picture is not what I actually received: all of mine came with a miniature picture above the hieroglyphic alphabet. This was slightly disappointing, since I was more interested in the larger scenes, but for what amounted to $.20 each (I purchased at a good time) we are quite satisfied. The papyrus piece sits in, and can easily be removed from, a plastic sheath (obviously, it is not meant to be used as a bookmark apart from the sheath), but I plan to pass a number of these through a laminator for long-term durability.
These are a great price and beautiful bookmarks. Made on real papyrus with elaborate designs- I am in love them-perfect for collectors or avid readers
I can't speak to the bookmarks' durability as we've only had them a few weeks, but the ink-printed papyrus looks fantastic and the designs are lovely. About half of the bookmarks are devoted to the Egyptian alphabet set in a grid rather than an end-to-end spread, which I wasn't expecting, but even these are each capped off by a unique Egyptian design, so I'm perfectly happy with them.
I'd expect to find these for a dollar or two apiece in a museum gift shop, so to get the whole set for $6 seems like a great deal to me.
If you've got a budding archeologist, a fan of Rick Riordan's Red Pyramid series, or just a reader who likes cool curiosities I'd say go ahead and order these. Could also be great as part of a set of gift bags for a themed birthday party, or what have you.
