Lamy Aion in Black or Olivesilver

My apologies for such a long gap between entries. No excuses are offered, suffice to say that over all that time, there has been a huge amount of work, the loss of more than one dear friend, and not a little international travel; and it's the latter which leads me to my latest post.

Rhodia DotPad Notepad No. 12

This is obviously why I … Continue reading Clairefontaine Age-Bag Tan Journal

Life Noble Note A5

The Life Japanese Stationery brand of handmade notebooks, writing paper, and other products have become a firm favorite of mine over the last couple of years. I regularly pick up products from my two favorite Toronto stationers, the terrific Take Note (though not so much for buying online), and the all-round amazing Wonder Pens.
