WHAT IS THE BOOKMARK ALBATROS ?
The Albatros is a new kind of bookmark that follows your reading. No need to remember the page number each time you turn one it inserts itself at the right place. The Albatros bookmarks were invented and developed by Oscar Lhermitte and are made in France.
WHAT MAKES THESE BOOKMARKS SO COOL
Here's how we see things: the Albatros bookmark allows you to forget bookmarks.
Once you put it in your book, it will take care of the rest. If you read a novel and suddenly have to stop to take the bus, just drop the book in your bag, you will find the Albatros on the page where you stopped.
HOW DOES ALBATROS WORK ?

1. Will the adhesive damage my books?
No, it wont. The adhesive used is a removable one. You can stick it and remove it without damaging your loved books.
2. Can I reuse my bookmark in another book?
You could potentially use one bookmark for several books. However, the glue might become less sticky after multiple uses.
We see the Albatros bookmark as integrated in every book. When we have finished reading a book, we leave the Albatros inside so that the next time someone will read it, the bookmark will be there.
3. Does Albatros work on any book of any format?
The Albatros bookmark works on books, pocketbooks, sketchbooks, diaries, A to Z maps, of different sizes.
It is however not suitable for book thicknesses over 4-5 cm.
4. I have just inserted my Albatros bookmark in my book and it is popping out of the book when I open it, what do I do?
This can happen sometimes at the beginning. When the Albatros bookmark has been freshly placed, it is important to mark the inner fold. If you leave the book closed for a moment, the fold will be created naturally.
