Personalized Ogham Bookmarks

I'm really loving these personalized Ogham bookmarks from Michael Connolly, designer and maker of bespoke furniture in Ireland, and the creator behind Fine Irish Crafts on Etsy. Ogham (pronounced oem) is an early Medieval alphabet used to write the earliest form of the Irish language. Ogham inscriptions, which date mainly from the fourth and fifth centuries, can still be found on standing stones around Ireland, especially in the south.
A personalized Ogham bookmark in Irish oak with rosewood inlay would make a beautiful gift for a reader/lover of all things Irish, and a unique wedding favor or gift (with the couple's initials in Ogham).
