A few nice things…

It’s been a little while since I shared some nice things from around the internet, so here’s some cool stuff I’ve seen recently: Comp. This Kickstarter is a new, modern take on the American classic Composition notebook. It’s only got 3 days to go and has already reached it’s goal, but it looks pretty good to me… Read more »

Book Review: Nib & Ink

A couple of weekends ago, I managed to actually sit down for two afternoons in a row and work my way through Nib & Ink, Chiara Perano’s modern calligraphy book. You may have seen Chiara’s work before through her company, Lamplighter London. I should preface this review by saying using the book wasn’t my introduction to… Read more »

Moustache Stationery: Bullet Journaling

I’m a bit late on this one but I still wanted to share April’s Moustache Stationery box because it was a really good one! The first thing that struck me was the new packaging, with these stationery graphics that I think are on point. The content was focussed on giving you everything you need to… Read more »

Diamine Orange: Mini Review

This is my second experience of a Diamine ink. You can see my review of the Beethoven dark green here. The orange is another shade that I got in my Wick & Hide ink sample package. It’s also my first ever orange fountain pen ink. I wouldn’t normally go for an orange, it’s just not… Read more »

A curious pen…

Last month’s Moustache Stationery box was on the theme of sustainability, and within it was one really interesting item: a bamboo calligraphy pen, the likes of which I’ve never seen before. Apologies, these photos aren’t up to my normal standards but this was un unplanned shoot! I was just sitting at my desk looking through… Read more »

Stationery “staples”: Bic & Staedtler

The folks at National Stationery Week sent me a bag of goodies, including brands like Bic and Staedtler, which I consider to be office supply/stationery cupboard staples (no pun intended). These aren’t my normal bag – I’m a bit picky about my stationery choices, I like items that have been thoughtfully designed and aren’t necessarily… Read more »

Kickstarter: Magnetips

Just a quick one from me today – and I’m a bit late to the party with this one… I saw a Kickstarter, via Fast Company, and just thought I’d share it in case anyone hasn’t seen. If you want to get in on though, you’d better be quick as there’s only 3 days to… Read more »

Fountain Pentel Review

The Fountain Pentel is a funny little pen. It’s not quite like anything else I’ve used. It’s got a fibre nib but it’s shaped more like a fountain pen. The Pentel website contradicts itself a bit as it puts it in the “plastic/fibre pens” category but describes it as the “Original ‘delta’-shaped nib fountain pen”…. Read more »

Moustache Stationery: January Box

The theme of the January Moustache Stationery box was Coffee and Tea. Here’s what came in the box! A Tombow Kei Coat Double-Sided Highlighter. I love getting Japanese products in the original packaging. It’s much more interesting than the english language packaging! This highlighter will be really useful – a fat end for highlighting and a… Read more »

Moustache Stationery: Notes & Doodles

In my usual style, I’m often about a month behind on Moustache Stationery subscription boxes! But I suppose that’s better than ruining it for anyone… Last month’s box (received in November) had the theme Notes and Doodles. I’d say this is probably the least strictly curated of the boxes so far, they’ve often been very… Read more »
