Grids & Guides Notepads

I love these Grids & Guides Notepads by Princeton Architectual Press. They partner their Grids & Guides Notebook too. As regular readers will know, I always prefer a grid notebook, and there’s something about these other patterns that appeal to me too. Each pad has a useful information bar at the top too; formulas, measurements… Read more »

Shop Visit + Haul: Choosing Keeping

Choosing Keeping is located on East London’s (famous for its flower market) Columbia Road. It’s been around a few years but until a couple of weeks ago, I somehow hadn’t made it inside (probably because I’m usually on Columbia Road during the flower market and it’s so hectic that I just get my flowers and… Read more »

Leuchtturm 1917 A5 Lined Notebook Review

This notebook was my prize selection from last month’s Bureau Direct Haul. I’ve noticed a bit of a Leuchtturm 1917 notebook trend going around different teams at work, and I’ve wanted one for ages but not needed a new work notebook. My May Bureau Direct order came at a perfect time to justify finally getting one…. Read more »

Moustache Stationery Subscription Box

There are a few stationery subscriptions services about but they tend to be fairly girly/cutesy, so there’s definitely space in the market for a more unisex version out there and I think Moustache Stationery may just have nailed it. They were kind enough to send me their first box to review, so here’s what was… Read more »

Bureau Direct Haul: May

Hello! How’ve you been? After a week off, I’m back. Perhaps not with a bang. But feeling rested and remembering why I started this blog in the first place. So this seems like a good time to share something positive. After going to visit Bureau Direct at their offices/warehouse a couple of months ago, we’ve… Read more »

PaperBridge by Steve Messam

Just a quick one today, to share this incredible piece of art by artist Steve Messam that I saw on Colossal. It’s called PaperBridge and it… a bridge made of paper. Amazing though right?! You can read all about the project and see many more pictures at Colossal. Photo by Steve Messam

Waking, Waiting, Walking Notebooks

I really like the concept of this notebook set by American artist Nathaniel Russell and Plumb Goods. The Waking, Waiting, Walking notebooks each have a different purpose. As the names suggest, waking is for recording your dreams, walking is for sketching the world, and waiting for filling time. It also comes with a little pull… Read more »

Paperblanks Fortuna Journal

I remember one year my mum Father Christmas put a Paperblanks notebook in my stocking and I thought it was so luxury and grown up! It had a magnet fasting that I found really satisfying to snap shut. I was recently sent a Fortuna notebook from the Via Romana range and even though I’m now… Read more »
