In China, bookmarks were the first to be called publications, meaning "cutting wood branches to mark". Bookmarks originated in the Spring and Autumn Period and Warring States Period and were called "toothpicks" at that time. It is made of bamboo. Whenever you see a very important place in the scroll, you will insert a "toothpick" at one end of the book for easy viewing later. When the scroll book is changed to folding, the use of bookmarks becomes even greater. In the Tang Dynasty, there was already a bookmark or toothpick. In the Song Dynasty, the printing industry was developed. Most of the bookmarks were made of paper or silk cloth. They were called "floating picks" or "book cover inscriptions". They were also called toothpicks in the old days. In the 16th century, Queen Elizabeth I used bookmarks. Internationally, bookmarks were commercialized very early. In the 19th century, Thomas Steven was famous for making bookmarks. In 1862, he published bookmarks called Stevengraphs.
