Windows on Canterbury: A Bookmark

Here’s a bookmark found in a batch of used books at Crux:

It is pretty. And sort of upside down. This bookmark has the tassel dangling from the bottom instead of hanging off the top. I’m not sure how that is meant to work. Maybe the bookmark is meant for a small book so the tassel hangs below the book to mark the page? Maybe it is meant for a prayerbook. Maybe it actually me that is upside down.


Hi, and welcome to Crux Books: A Discount Theological Blog. You might be wondering about that tag line. Do we discount theology? No, but we do sell theological books at a discount price! Our store sign says Crux Discount Theological Books. Lots of people walk by and think they are original when they notice that “discount” has more than one meaning. Yup, we know it can sound funny, but it does describe what our store carries. Here on the blog our content is free for everyone to read — discounted in the sense we mean it at the store. You are also free to discount what you find here in the sense that you can ignore it or disregard it. We hope you don’t do that. Come on in, pull up a chair, and make yourself comfortable. I’m sure we’ll find something interesting to talk about.
