Instituto Cervantes is one of the best producers of free bookmarks in the country and the only one that produces the kind of bookmarks I can only expect receiving from my international exchanges. If you’re also a bookmark collector residing here, you know what I mean. Free bookmarks are rare, much more the “collection-material” ones.

Good thing I used to gatecrash at Instituto Cervantes in many of their events. That was how I discovered that they distribute free bookmarks. And if you know me, I wouldn’t let a chance pass without checking out if a new piece is out for free, again.

So for this month, I’m sharing my marcadores de Instituto Cervantes with you.

These bookmarks are a dream for two main reasons:

First, because they feature some of the great authors of the Spanish literature:

Grandes Autores de la Literature En Español

  • Victoria Ocampo (Buenos Aires, 1890-San Isidro, 1979)
  • Gabriel Aresti (Bilbao, 1933-1975)
  • Salvador Espriu (Santa Coloma de Farners, 1913-Barcelona, 1985)
  • Rosalia de Castro (Santiago de Compostela, 1837-Padron, 1885)
  • Jose Lezama Lima (La Habana, 1910-1976)

And second, because they feature some of the great poems written by famous Spanish poets:

Poems and Publications

  • El son enterso, de Nicolas Guillen
  • Canto general, de Pablo Neruda
  • Soneto, de Lope de Vega
  • La regenta, de Leopoldo Alas Clarin
  • La realidad y el deseo, de Luis Cernuda
  • Desde la torre, de Francisco de Quevedo

Now the marcadores, everyone. Indulge on them!

Anything to share? :)
