Ishmael related promotional products are a way to raise money, draw people to events, and make people aware of Ishmael in your daily life.

What better way to promote Ishmael than with bookmarks?!? Stick them in books you loan to friends, even beyond Daniel Quinn. You couldn’t possibly use a bookmark for an entire book without noticing what it says! Give them to friends, family, hand them out at organizational tables, stock stores, libraries, and bookstores.

Several bookmarks with different pictures of Ishmael on top with suggested books.
Edit to include your own books or other books from Daniel Quinn's recommended reading list.

Send us your bookmark graphics for everyone to use!
