Design of bookmarks for the publishing house Piratforlaget. The bookmarks may be used as eyepatches, a playful reference to the name of the publishing house (pirates are often depicted with eyepatches). Historically pirates frequently had to move above and below decks, from daylight to near darkness, and the smart ones wore a patch over one eye to keep it dark-adapted outside. When the pirate went below decks, he could switch the patch to the outdoor eye and see in the darkness easily. Surely an advantage when moving around and reading books in different lights…
