Forgotten Bookmarks : a bookseller’s collection of odd things lost between the pages, by Michael Popek.

How did a photograph of a marching band end up in a copy of George Orwell’s Animal Farm?  And how appropriate that a metal sign saying ‘EMERGENCY EXIT’ was found in a copy of The Riverdale Shakespeare.  This volume pairs facsimile photos of both book and item found within without comment, leaving the story-making up to you.   See also www.forgottenbookmarks.com and remember to remove whatever you’ve used for a bookmark from your library book before returning it!
