A deep love for books was what initially spurred the idea of Book Darts. Bob Williams and his wife Jeanette, were seeking a way to mark their favourite passages without using a pen or high-lighter, turning down page corners or using paper clips: all of which shorten a book‘s life. Book Darts were developed to enrich the reading experience by allowing readers to mark important lines and easily re-find them without harming the pages (and, thus, to encourage re-reading).
Bob – a former college and high school teacher – has also been a librarian, archivist, boat builder, wood cutter, and printer. The first Book Darts were made in a basement and required five separate hand operations using three tools. Now they are made much faster in a high speed press in the company's facility in Hood River, Oregon.
