Monday, 7 November 2011
Bookmarkers, etc. woven by Thomas Stevens of Coventry form a very specific category of ephemera. Stevengraphs, Bookmarks & Postcards, etc is an excellent example of a collector/dealer (in this case Malcolm J Roebuck) documenting and researching his field, taking forward in this case electronically, the work of Geoffrey A. Godden in his book, Stevengraphs and other Victorian silk pictures. The site isn't limited to Stevengraphs but includes other manufacturers of woven silk bookmarkers, postcards, etc. 1,600 images are already on the site, the aim of which is "to offer the most complete history of Thomas Stevens."
