A stationery conversation

Oh, hello. It’s you.

I’m so sorry, I can’t talk to you right now. I’m very busy.

Very, very busy.

Doing what, you ask? Er, research. Yes, that’s it, research. Very busy with reserach.

Oh, you want to know what I’m researching? Always with the questions. Sigh. Well, if you must know, I’m investigating stationery. Yes, stationery. Stationery needs investigating.

What’s that? Well, yes, I did do that feature a couple of years ago about how we crave beautiful stationery even though nobody seems to hand write anything anymore. What of it? Didn’t you read to the end of that story. Don’t you remember how important that small piece of tactile luxury is in a world that’s increasingly online and untouchable?

Of course you do. Which is why I know you won’t mind if I just leave you right here and go back to salivating over beautiful paper products. If you’d like to join me, you can start here:

Upon A Fold

or here: Little Branch

or here: Paddock Press

And if you are a fellow stationery addict, please share your favourite online shopping haunts.  I’m in the mood for paper.
