If you're the type of reader who considers dog-earing pages a crime against literature, you know the importance of a good bookmark. In addition to holding your page, these fake food bookmarks (spotted by Spoon & Tamago) will work up your appetite.

The hyper-realistic bookmarks are from Japan and are made to resemble eight scrumptious food items, including bacon, pancakes, eggs, popsicles, and fried salmon. The markers were retailing for between 1080 and 1620 yen ($10 to $15) before the supply ran out. To see when they're back in stock, keep on eye out for updates from Tokyo Kitsch—the online shop that sells them—on Twitter and Facebook. In the meantime, there are plenty of other quirky bookmarks out there that would look just as good between the pages of your next read.
