How great is the new Field Notes Coastal edition? Seeing the science of geography and stationery come together is really exciting for me, because I am a geographer in real life. Bryan Bedell of Field Notes gave me a little bit of insight into the design process for this lovely edition, too.
Last year, I spent time working in Oslo, Norway. When I had a few hours to myself, I popped into Lush Dive, a highly recommended stationery store in Grünerløkka, a very walkable and interesting part of the city.
I’ve been working in North America for most of January (Washington DC, New York and Vancouver to be exact) doing a variety of things – attending a conference, meetings and fieldwork. A few weeks away means a fairly substantive travel carry. Here’s what’s in my pencilcase for this chilly trip.
Happy New Year! Around this time last year I published my stationery-related New Year’s Resolutions for 2017. I’ve written a quick review of how I did on these resolutions (not too badly!) and I’m sharing my 2018 Stationery Resolutions.
And now, for something a little different. As you may have noticed from my occasional travel carry posts (when I am prepared enough to write about them in advance), I travel fairly regularly for work. Today I’m writing about a stack of notebooks that were given to my team by Nanjing Metro.
This post has been bumped right up my schedule because I’m too excited not to share it with you. Today I’m writing about my recent trip to Field Notes HQ in Chicago.
I’ve been working in Leipzig since Monday, a city I have never visited before. As with any business trip, I meticulously planned my stationery everyday carry. I’m attending a summit consisting of several talks, panel sessions and technical visits, so my stationery carry is geared towards easy notetaking and brainstorming.
In November last year I entered a competition at the newly-opened Design Museum in London, to win a NotAnotherBill gift subscription. And I won! Three months of complementary gifts came in the post, and today I’m reviewing what I received. Also, for the first time on The London Parchment I’m hosting a giveaway, to pay my luck forward that I had when I won this gift subscription.
I have been lucky enough to receive both of WritePads limited edition packs of notebooks in my monthly Pocket Notebooks subscription box; the Lenore edition and the newly released Kindred Spirit. Today I’m compiling my thoughts on the Lenore and my initial impressions of the Kindred Spirit.
On Friday afternoon I swung by I AM A’s pop up shop in Clerkenwell. I AM A is a stationery and gifts company and their Pimps Your Workspace pop up was full of one of my favourite things – pencils!
