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.
My trip to North America in January presented an opportunity to visit New York City, and I couldn’t say no. Amongst other things, I spent a wonderful hour perusing pencils in Caroline Weaver’s lovely new space on Orchard Street.
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.
My Petit Pan “papier imprimé” is prized amongst my stationery collection. Petit Pan produce beautiful, loose, printed paper sheets for decorating, wrapping and for all manner of crafty pursuits. I’ve written a short post today, to share these sheets of loveliness.
I’m currently trying to choose my diary and journal system for 2018, as they are a staple of my Christmas list. I think being a stationery lover comes with a certain amount of indecisiveness and over-analysis, especially when trying to commit to a product for a year. I’ve narrowed down a selection to share with you over two posts, alongside some highly first-world-problem thoughts about each one. This first post looks at diary choices for the year – my day-to-day solution for noting down appointments, things I need to remember and all manner of jottings. Can you help me choose?
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.
Do you ever look at the stationery you’re using and wonder how it came to be? I do. With this in mind, I recently visited G.F Smith, a paper maker. I had come across G.F Smith online when reading about various paper projects so when I saw that they have a space you can visit and a gorgeous paper art installation, I popped over one lunchtime to visit this Great British company.
