Yes, it is crochet, and I guess not a bookmark, but a book belt (or just a belt for a child?)
Looks like a belt to me.
A Belt in the making?
Perhaps a strap for a woman's over the shoulder handbag...cannot determine it its crochet, macrame or knitting...most interesting book mark, one could tie a book around and tote it along.
There are some knit or crochet patterns out there for bookmarks that wrap around the book. Like a fancier version of a normal bookmark. They usually have some sort of clasp, though.
Here's an example of the type I'm talking about:http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mariannes-romantic-bookmark
Patricia, I would say crochet, as it looks very similar to a coverlet my mother spent years making; the pattern for that used some of the same stitches as I can see in this.
I'd call it tatting.
I like the idea of it being a book holder/belt
The book "Of Human Bondage" was found tied up with a book belt. Am I the only one who finds that funny?
