Death of a Book Plate

As everyone is worrying about what will happen when there are no more non-electronic books, there are bigger issues.

What about book marks? Or even bookbinders?

We are looking at an entire industry that could collapse or at the very least we will lose the skills that these people have to a smaller minority then it already is.
