Issue 48 – Stationery is a wondrous thing! For us creatives, there’s just something magical about pens, notebooks, paperclips, staplers, greeting cards and other paper-related goodies. They hold the promise of discovery and help us manifest our ideas. You can never have e-nough stationery! (That’s my handy mnemonic device for remembering the correct spelling.)
With this first-hand experience of the challenges—and satisfaction—of making papergoods, it has been my pleasure to curate this special Guide to Stationery and Papergoods Designers & Makers and to highlight so many talented small businesses pursuing their paper-related passions.
Another theme running through this issue is the notion of grids, lines and rules. Some are there to guide us, some are meant to be followed closely and sometimes it is best to break the rules altogether!
